Arch-OS – VILLAGE SCREEN @ The Glastonbury Festival Big Screens

Aqeel Akbar, Immersive Media Assistant at the Immersive Vision Theatre was selected to join the team of seven artists working on site at the festival. The dynamic visualisations shown on the screen included the Quartz Composer real time Arch-OS data visualization developed in the i-DAT/AHO/Bartlett workshop.

“The Village Screen project was a unique collaboration led by the region’s 2012 Creative Programmer, Glastonbury Festival, Team South West and Relays (Legacy Trust UK programme), and including the UK’s network of Creative Programmers, screen agencies and the BBC’s Live Sites team, brings the Village Screen to Glastonbury for the first time this year. The screens will be used to showcase the work of some of the best new filmmaking talent, digital artists, VJs and games developers from the region and the UK.

The 25m2 screens (there are two of them, back- to- back) will broadcast a mix of short films, archive footage, gaming sessions, classic pop and highlights of the BBC’s coverage of the Festival from 10.00am to 3.00am every day.

Village Screen was coordinated by Richard Crowe, London 2012 Creative Programmer.
