The Kazimier team test out Oracle, their outdoor exhibit created as part of the Hull's Yorkshire Maritime City programme. Oracle is an eight-metre lighthouse that will float in Prince's Dock, Hull and which takes real-time readings of wind speed, temperature and rain to highlight the importance of weather to navigation at sea.
POOL OF MIRRORS
Taking inspiration from Chinese ‘Magic’ Mirrors that were cast in solid bronze and shrouded in mystery, Liverpool based collective The Kazimier will bring ancient artefacts bang up to date with cutting edge materials, creating a metallic mirage of light in the canal. Inspired by the use of Bronze as a mirror during the Han Dynasty in ancient China, this brand new commission updates the basic science behind this amazing innovation, using lasers and floating dichroic filters to reimagine the canal in an extraordinary light display. camera/edit/sound mix by tommy husband 'pool of mirrors' music by sam crombie
