If Amnesty were to use The Faces of Amnesty demonstration in The Bearpit, we would need to brief them on all of the equipment and resources necessary. In response, we have written a detailed document summarising the projection scenario as a whole, listing each technical aspect involved. This is so that Amnesty could successfully deploy the project without our input.
Technical Requirements and Equipment Specification
Organisation: Amnesty International
Street Demonstration: The Faces of Amnesty
Location: The Bearpit, Bristol
Summary: The Faces of Amnesty is an interactive street projection designed to raise awareness about Amnesty’s achievements.The projection looks to engage numerous people, consisting of four cubes and projectors. See details below.
Cube Content: For this particular demonstration, the cubes used as an interface to display the projections are made out of foam board, a lightweight and cost effective material. However, if you were to perform this demonstration on the street, we would recommend utilisation of a durable material such as plastic acrylic.
