And now for something completely urban

A bit more downtown, and is the skateboard bit of the CONS project LND. The design was done as a collaboration with Jerome Campbell, one of the brand ambassadors of Cons. And the idea was to create a street that is a collection of sought after skate spots, tweaked to become better to skate. We then drew up all the objects and master plan to make sure it all worked together for it to be built in the UK.

The build was done by a group of talented folk from The Scenery Shop, based out in Sussex. All of the objects were built offsite, then with an intense three day onsite build. It was a pleasure working with all the crew: Alex Peters, Alex Avantis, Alan Hayes, Rob Smith, Lars Lauritzen, Harriet Lumby, Eddy Llewellyn, Elliot Dawes, Jos Carroll, Tom Roy Sue Puckett, Natalie red Perkins, Candy Tomlinson, Tim and captain Si Carroll, the end result was hyper real, and a blur between reality and fiction.

PhotoBooth

Together with UID in Umeå we designed and built this photobooth for student portraits. Inside is a two way mirror, with the camera and lights behind in the dark, so when sitting inside you cannot see the tech, or where the image is being taken from.
There is audio feedback from the camera shutter, when the user presses the all important biggish red button.
