Northern Lights, 2010


This was Robs first collaborative commissioned piece. Along with another student from Northumbria University he worked closely with to realise this vision, for NGI Enchanted Parks student commission in Saltwell Park, Gateshead.


The animations of the Northern Lights were played on a loop using three projectors with screens.  Along with the animations a soundtrack was produced using popular festive music stretched beyond recognition. If the original track was originally 3:35, the sound software used could stretch the tracks duration to over 40 minutes.


Although this was Robs first collaborative commission both were commended on their professionalism. The audience were surprised to find out that the piece was apart of the student commission series.
