Tribeca Film Festival / The Bomb
The Bomb was inspired by Eric Schlosser’s book ‘Command and Control’ and formed one of the major closing events at the Tribeca Film Festival 2016. The audience was immersed within a bespoke environment at the Gotham Hall with a 55-minute film projected in 360° as The Acid performed a live score in the center of the space.
The studio collaborated with Das Bombe to deliver the installation environment, show sequencing, and creating central custom lighting fixture made from an array of 18 LPS bulbs, revealed through 18 DMX controlled actuated fins.
“The performance combines the senses of sight, sound, and to some extent even touch and smell, to get across the raw physical impact of the explosion of a nuclear bomb. Overall, the effect is one of standing inside the 21st-century version of a giant, old-fashioned cyclorama while weapons explode.” - Bulletin of Atomic Scientist.
