The video figures spoke in aphorisms, reflecting on the human condition (received through wireless headphones, the words also seen as animated text on the screen.). On a lateral screen evanescent figures were continually climbing up and down two ladders mirroring the motif carved on the Abbey frontage.
A 3D audio landscape of changing tonal voices accompanied the visitor between the screens on wireless headphones. The artist worked with composer Richard Barnard and singers, musicians and sound designers in Bristol/Bath on this aspect of the piece.
The project utilised specially commissioned ultrasound tracking software (Bristol University Wearables Group) to detect human presence and location. Information was passed to control computers, which co-ordinated the video feed to individual projectors from networked machines. The presences were filmed on high definition digital video and transferred as QuickTime files to server hard drives.
