One of the most monumental projectionist surfaces ever imaginable
Back in 1945, Sir Bernard Lovell, a radio astronomer at the Manchester University, established the Jodrell Bank Observatory. This landmark observatory is home to the Lovell Telescope, one of the world’s largest (76 meters in diameter), fully steerable radio telescopes, which has been exploring the radio sky for decades. And since 2011, the unique Jodrell Bank site has been the exceptional décor for ‘Transmission Live from Jodrell Bank’, a series of shows that bring together music, science activities and workshops.
In the weekend of 30 and 31 August, the Observatory celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Observatory’s founder with a special edition of ‘Transmission Live’. The Icelandic Sigur Ros (Friday) and Manchester’s renowned Hallé symphony orchestra both played an unforgettable set in this particular setting. Equally mind-blowing were the visuals. The Lovell Telescope served as a spectacular backdrop for a documentary on the life and work of Sir Bernard Lovell. Working with Spaceside Creatives, Bluman Associates had produced the documentary and supervised its projections onto the Lovell Telescope.
Pod Bluman, Managing Director of Bluman Associates commented: “This was a fantastic showcase for our new design capabilities on one of the most monumental projectionist surfaces ever imaginable. For the actual event, we had a very tight timeframe to ensure all projectors were in the exact right place down to the last millimetre. We used four of Barco’s new 40,000 lumen 2k DLP projectors and the incredible brightness ensured pixel-perfect reproduction of all content. The show was definitely a crowd pleaser and we are proud to have been part of celebrating the work of a clearly much-admired man.”
