Shine Your Light

For RTÉ’s national campaign 'Shine Your Light', we were commissioned in collaboration with THINKHOUSE to deliver a series of spectacular events across Ireland as well as the show’s spectacular opening sequence.
The project included projection mapping 6 major art installations in Dublin, Kilkenny, Sligo, Waterford, Cork and Clare - bringing the art from RTÉ’s illuminations project to cities across the country using some of our most iconic sites and monuments as the canvases. 
The multi-platform event culminated in a live TV broadcast on RTÉ One, a radio special on RTÉ Radio 1 and the six spectacular light-art installations. We worked together with Thinkhouse to deliver the awe-inspiring opening sequence. This included creating dynamic immersive installations using innovative creative approaches. The campaign went live across Ireland and culminated in a spectacular, special show on RTE with a performance with famous Irish band Clannad .

Bringing The Past To Life

We brought an ancient Kerbstone at the Knowth Stone Age Passage Tomb to life, using projection mapping.

This is the oldest sundial in the world dating back 7000 years and the level of craftsmanship and ingenuity in the inscriptions shows how advanced civilisation was during that time.

The grooves that indicate the solstices are inscribed deeply into the stone, adding to the importance of those times of year in our history.

The campaign received national attention and was featured on the Six O Clock News, as well as national radio and newspapers.
