WOKINGHAM, England – (January 22, 2019) – Two Christie HS Series laser projectors and Christie Pandoras Box​ media player created a digital corridor at London’s Barbican. The commissioned space is a two-story slanted wall in the main foyer that can be seen from several floors. The images are managed and controlled by Pandoras Box to match and complement the architecture of the space.

This is the first co-commission with the Lumen Prize. Recognized as the world’s leading award for digital art, The Lumen Prize is co-curating projection-based art using Christie technology for the Barbican’s public spaces. Christie and the Barbican have a long-term partnership and a shared belief in the marriage between art and technology – a vision shared by Lumen Prize founder Carla Rapoport who said projectors can transform an entire space and “allows us to go so much further than we ever could with screens or, dare I say it, with oils or watercolors.”
