Tree Of Life Stage Installation
Underlying Physical Structure
Below is an interactive 3d model which shows the layout of the stage and the underlying supporting structures made from metal trussing.
Use your left and right mouse buttons to rotate and pan around the scene, and the scroll button to zoom closer for more detail.
Highlighted red are the metal trussing structures that will need to be built by another crew in advance so that we can build our stage installation onto a sold foundation.
Highlighted pink is necessary fencing required.
Highlighted green is where our projectors will be positioned.
On the left of the stage is room for the sound engineers guys and our equipment .
On the right is the backstage area with room for sofa, chairs, table fridge etc.
Directly behind the dj will be fenced off and out of bounds to avoid people casting shadows on the projections.
We will of course be covering up all of the trussing and fencing and equipment that is visible from the front.
We had previously discussed a low stage being 50cm tall, if possible we would like it to be 20cm tall so that the dj is not obscuring the face on the tree behind.
The 3 images below show the dimensions of the supporting structures that we will require to build upon.
To ensure the tree looks as beautiful in the daytime as it does at night geometric patterns will be highly incorporated into the design in several ways.
Firstly through laser cut wood pieces as part of the main tree trunk structure.
Secondly though additional stencil spray painted patterns.
Thirdly though platonic solids wooden geometry hanging from the branches.
The front of the tree including the face and parts of the trunk will be video projection mapped with custom animations designed to make the face come to life.

Structure design and manufacture
This is the process of designing and then manufacturing a unique, one of a kind multi layered 3d structure that is equally as beautiful as sculpture in the daytime as it is at night when it comes to life through that aid of video projection and led illumination.
