Eden Project laser art show promises to blow viewers minds
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Chris Levine, who has done laser displays for musicians such as Grace Jones and Massive Attack, will be undertaking his most ambitious project yet for The Eden Festival of Light and Sound, which runs from November 25 to December 30.
Visitors can step onto the Eden viewing platform and stare in wonder at the dramatic laser show, that will pierce the dark canopy with light, and paint the stunning biomes with colour. The Mediterranean Biome will take centre stage for the festival, with choreographed performances of light and sound taking place every day. It an unmissable opportunity to experience the Eden Project like never before.
The nine big laser systems will interact with the natural phenomena like rain, mist, trees and plants for a memorable visual exhibition. The colour palette has been designed specifically for the festive season, using red, blue, green, white and magenta, the colours traditionally associated with Christmas.
Chris Levine is hailed as a pioneer of light art and designed a holographic CD for David Bowie's Buddha of Suburbia. He said about his Eden project, "This will be totally unique. I've never done anything quite like this. What we will be doing builds on what I did at Eden in 2009 [a laser installation for Paul Weller's Eden Sessions] but there will be much more laser power this time."
In addition to the laser light display being a visual spectacle, Chris is hoping the experience will be immersive, meditative and transcendental for the visitors to the Eden Project.
The festival will also feature live music from top performers from across the South West, directed by singer-songwriter Jamie Crowe and choir leader Vicky Abbott. This even is a big addition to Eden's calendar of events around Christmas, alongside the annual favourites of Father Christmas and the ice-rink.
