Mike Mizrahi transforms this building with a stunning display, celebrating the launch of the Telecom XT (3G) network in New Zealand.
Three large PIGI projectors (as used during the recent Olympic Games) were used to create the ten sets of imagery as follows.
The performance begins with the building draped in curtains that rise, also falling at the end of each cycle.
- Candy House
Hansel and Gretel eat your heart out!
- Sand Castle
Keep an eye out for the wandering moggy.
- London Underground
- Palace of Westminster
- Rocket Launch
The following messages also appear during the display: TAKE ANOTHER LOOK; OF NEW ZEALAND - FOR NEW ZEALAND; THE FUTURE IS HERE; DISCOVER. CREATE. EXPLORE; FROM CAPE REINGA TO THE BLUFF; A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES; TAKE A TEST DRIVE.
