Newman's shows are renowned as a unique and unforgettable experience, providing a personal, and entirely unexpected dimension to your event.
'Rupert Newman is The King of Projections' Vogue Secret Address Book
During his time at The Royal College of Art (Printed Textiles 2010), Newman transformed series of wall hangings by projecting light effects onto them. He soon realised that this technique (projection mapping) could work with any object, art or architecture to alter its appearance. Since then Newman has travelled the world illuminating impressive venues from The Guildhall in London, to the Olympic Ski Jump in Cortina.
“The beauty of light is that it is untouchable. Its beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. I describe light as a kaleidoscope. It is intricate, unexpected and the slightest change will affect the overall appearance” Rupert Newman
