Boardmasters 2015; Vision Nine HQ/Relentless Energy/Coca Cola
"Boardmasters is an annual event held in Cornwall, usually held over four days in mid-August. The event is a combination of live music and surfing/skateboarding competitions in and around the town of Newquay. The festival has a heritage that goes back to 1981 and with a current capacity of over 30,000 it's one of the UK's biggest music festivals" - Boardmasters
At the end of summer 2015 I was commissioned by Vision Nine Hq to design, build and install a piece to accompany the relentless energy stage. The piece needed to attract the attention of festival goers and encourage them to take photos for social media/marketing of the festival. It was important that the piece followed the current aesthetic theme of the festivals other stages and installations; rough sawn timbers, natural forms and textures.
The piece was designed/build and installed all within the tight time-scale of 12 days, and was well received by festival goers and the clients Vision Nine Hq/Relentless Energy(Coca-Cola) I used Cornish larch which was sawn near Falmouth, and the whole project was constructed near Falmouth too. The project incorporated traditional joinery and construction,CNC routing and fully weatherproof LED electronics.
