In Marling, people become players on the urban stage, together using their voices to bring to life an urban-scale aurora in a large outdoor public space.
A core part of Marling is to create a – sometimes indescribable – shared public memory of collaboration that lasts long after the event. Simply set up and performed using lasers, microphones and custom-built software, Marling enables thousands to witness and participate in the collective experience of building an urban scale “aurora”. Members of the public use their voices to create forms through spectacular effects that hang in the air above the crowd, generating a delicate, intricate ceiling of animated colour. First shown at Glow Eindhoven in 2012, it has also appeared at Festival of Light, Huddersfield in 2013.
