Award-winning visual artist Max Hattler is currently showcasing his never-before-seen film on a very interesting type of screen. Instead of using a regular white backdrop to project his film, Hattler is showcasing his work on a giant screen of water.
If you go to the Kings Cross Filling Station on the Regent Canal, you will be able to view Hattler's public art installation. This is the first time a hydro-screen has been used to project video graphics. The water screen measures in at 10x15 meters and creates a stunning effect due to the amplification of the light on the water.
The video displays varying abstract shapes that play out in a circus of movements and colors, all of which are set to a lovely audio track.
The Canal Commission is part of the Vauxhall Ampera Season, a six month program of cultural events at the Kings Cross Filling Station.
