Arcadia fuse recycled scrap into dynamic sculptures. Built in Bristol and born at the Glastonbury Festival, Arcadia has developed a 12-meter-high three-legged spider built out of industrial scrap metal.
Now the lighting kit has been upgraded since the last performance at Glastonbury, and Colour Sound Experiment has introduced the SGM XC-5 LED colour strobes for the awakening of the spider at Queen Square in Bristol.
London based lighting and visuals rental company Colour Sound Experiment renewed their excellent working relationship with Arcadia, providing lighting for this amazing sculpture. Conventional strobes were replaced with the XC-5 LED strobes; four adorning each spider leg and another three on the belly.
Furthermore, two XC-5 fixtures were placed in each of the six PA towers, providing powerful LED strobe effects for the Metamorphosis event.
All lighting was controlled via an Avo Sapphire touch console.
The Arcadia spectacular - played out with mega style and energy to a thumping soundtrack, aerial stunts and the breath-taking imaginative audacity for which it’s known and loved – was followed by Bristol’s own drum ‘n’ bass guru Roni Size who performed with Reprazent on the Friday, together with Congo Natty and Leftfield doing their DJ set. Saturday’s after-show entertainment was followed by stonking sets from Annie Mac, Eats Everything, Monki, and Gotsome.
