The Christmas Project
9 and 10 December 2005
Streets of Falmouth, Cornwall, UK
On the 9th and 10th of December, from 19:00 to 21:00, Falmouth’s main streets, from High Street to Arwennac, were inundated with projections of summer holidays on private and shop windows.
The focus was on the top floors, taking passers'-by attention from the shop window level to the top floors, where most of the projections took place. The images were intended to add some emotive and visual warmth to the cold season. Falmouth, typically a destination for holidays, displayed the memories of its inhabitants from their summers spent all over the world.
In order for this event to happen, collective Art in Hidden Places of Falmouth (Brendan Byrne, Ana Carvalho, Magda Tyzlik-Carver) invited people of Falmouth to participate by lending their films, projectors and/or windows. The project was the result of this collaboration.
This film was an initiative of Pete Langford (Camera, Edit, Music) and Vic Proctor (Sound, Interviews).
