TVF International (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Described as "the artful dodger meets Einstein meets an explosion in a sequin factory," public artist Martin Firrell specializes in large-scale digital projections onto iconic architecture-text messages that raise questions about faith, human rights, cultural diversity, and other subjects. Marking the first time that Firrell has allowed cameras into his creative process, this program follows his controversial St. Paul's Cathedral project from beginning to end and includes commentary on the work from religious leaders, atheists, philosophers, and writers. From Firrell's negotiations with Cathedral bureaucrats to the impressions of everyday Londoners, the film offers a compelling juxtaposition of religious, cultural, and aesthetic challenges.
