Meet your Creator (2012)
A live theatrical performance with 16x moving head spotlights, 16x flying robots each equipped with LEDs and motorized mirrors.
Exploring UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) as a means to deflect and divert light, and create floating light sculptures dancing to music. Pushing the anthropomorphism of abstract forms to it’s limits – with an aim to create an emotional connection between audience and quad-rotor flying vehicles.
Now in its 22nd year, the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase hit Cannes again, unveiling another presentation of the new directorial talent. Marshmallow Laser Feast were the creative and technical directors of the production which included a theatrical performance by 16 flying robots reflecting light beams on the stage.
