Underwater Installation-Principal’s Dinner 2018, University of the West Indies, Barbados

Organization

Fieldtech Staging Solutions Inc in collaboration with R STUDIO

Fieldtech Staging Solutions Inc in collaboration with R STUDIO offer this evening in recognition of International Year of the Reef and thank the University of the West Indies for its continued support of these artistic collaborations.

This artwork was installed on Oct 19, 2018, as the environment for the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus 2018 Principal’s Dinner.  The Dinner is an annual flagship event for the campus that occurs in conjunction with the graduation ceremony.

The work consisted of 13 projection screens surrounding the guests in the main room on which images move from the surface of the ocean to the surface of a coral reef at a depth of about 55ft and then back to the surface at sunset.  The journey was broken down into approximately seven 20 minute increments, each at a different depth.

All images used in the installation were shot off the west coast of Barbados and the concept and design were a collaboration between RSTUDIO Multimedia and Fieldtech Staging Solutions.
