Here are some of the shot that I took, and found on Instagram and Facebook, of my art installation ‘One Leads to All’ at Electric Picnic 2013.
Some of the lighting had broken and I wasn’t happy with the way the rope light twisted around the poles when people handled them. The lighting that I choose this time was a white LED light as apposed to the warm white filament type rope light used before. The LED light was much more durable but surprisingly lighter and more flexible.
I also decided to drill holes up along all of the poles, back and front, in order to hold the rope light in place more easily. This was to be to the detriment of the piece. On the first night of Electric Picnic the pole became bent because they had been weakened by these holes…. live and learn. The light however remained on and people still sat amongst this deformed form throughout the festival.
I loved the way you could see ‘One Leads to All’ though the fence while standing at the other artwork I collaborated on ‘A Trip to the Moon’. It echoed the geometric stars that hung around the moon which were intentionally a slight nod to my own work from the beginning.
It was as a great learning experience for me and an even better festival.
