Message From The Skies 'New Year's Resurrection'

We presented Edinburgh in a brand new light. We took the public on a literary journey across the city; New Year's Resurrection, the short story by leading Scottish writer Val McDermid, told through projections onto Edinburgh’s buildings and landmarks.

HOW WE DID IT

SITE

INTERACTIONS

In the first UNESCO City of Literature, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay and Edinburgh International Book Festival commissioned Val McDermid to write a short story that was told through projections onto buildings and landmarks around Edinburgh. We collaborated with McDermid as well as with dramaturg, Philip Howard and some of Scotland’s best soundscape artists to bring the story to life.

The public were given the chance to explore the city as they read, moving from location to location to discover the next part of the story, from New Year’s Day to Burns Night. Each building or landmark was the canvas for its own chapter, so the whole story could be enjoyed in one evening, or over a series of days.

TESTIMONIALS

This ambitious, 25 day installation consisted of 12 sites, 13 projectors and the  emblazoning of 12 different creative pieces across these prominent Edinburgh façades. Double Take produced the artwork for each site and mapped and positioned the content onto the buildings.
