Vision4 was invited to Damascus to open it as Arab Capital of Culture 2008 in the big opera of Damascus, and i was hired to do the video technics and assisting on animation. It was a crazy eyeliner project with very limited time far away from our usual workplace. I was there in 3 weeks, the first two weeks we builded the eyeliner (12x8m), produced all the video material together with the video designer (Arthur Steijn) and a photographer and the concept developer Mikael Fock. And the last i was there alone with Mikael putting all the bits together for the show. The result was a big show shown on Syrian tv and seen by the president of Syria and Turkey and lots of other important people. The evening with most nerves in my live! A really crazy trip.
The technical setup was one big front 20.000 ansilumen projector for the eyeliner (we got it from Denmark by plane), one smaller back-projector and a mac pro running Isadora controlling both screens.
