Rooftophop

Noorderzon Festival, Groningen, Holland 2006

Site-specific installation by Mo Stoebe, Sophie Clements
Sound design by Renger Koning

When Pavlov Media commissioned Mo Stoebe and Sophie Clements to create an installation in Groningen’s city centre, they were challenged to fill a large arena formed by hidden rooftops with a sort of ‘experience’ people could witness in 15 minutes. The images you see are photographs of animations projected into different sections of the rooftop. Each set of light forms had it’s own sound, so as people moved upwards they passed by the individual elements of a final piece that was played at the top of the roof (the culmination of the ‘tour’), where all the elements play together. In some sections of this ‘pilgrimage’ the lights were static, in others the lights became a physical sculpture leading the way upward to the top of the roof.
