Christmas in central Hamilton city just keeps getting better. Hunters and gatherers of christmas spirit will be elated by the appearance of graphically designed lumens of light projecting onto the surface of St Peter's cathedral. This free event for all, follows last year's inaugural season of breathtaking visual magic under the stars. The cathedral has no ambient light and is the perfect space to view the light show. The Very Revd Peter Rickman says it's a privilege to share not only the amazing visual art but to share 'the beauty and spiritual and historical significance of the sacred hill of Pukerangiora ' The short 5min loop projects repeatedly throughout the evening so is perfect for anyone happy to stroll up a hill and works for anyones schedule.
The show design is courtesy of Luke McConnell and Jordan Foster, accomplished Wintec tutors, and will celebrate the christmas narrative in indigenous style. Maori visual motiffs such as tukutuku and kowhaiwhai patterns will be accompanied by a Jason Long, (also a Wintec tutor ) original soundtrack. Jordan Foster says ' the overall hope of the projection is that it will bring Hamiltonians together with themes that resonate more spiritually than a blatant shop - till - you drop Christmas'.
This project is a collaboration between Trees at the Meteor, St Peters, and Wintec proudly supported by HCC, Wintec, WEL and ACLX sound and lighting.
