Multi-media artists ‘MOTH’ explored the architecture of the De La Warr Pavilion through live, High-Definition projected visuals and music. ‘Plinth’ lead visitors with wireless headsets, around the exterior and interior of the Pavilion, with projected animations inspired by the building’s modernist architecture, and sounds captured in situ using contact mics and samplers by musician VC Kristi. The performance explored a myth related to the original designs for the building, based around a sculpture of the Greek goddess Persephone that was originally comissioned for the beach terrace but never installed. A workshop took place on the same day in which local young people learnt the secrets of MOTH's unique production and performance technique and had the opportunity to be creatively involved in producing the series of animated stories that were projected later during ‘Plinth’ This event was produced by UP Projects in collaboration with the De La Warr Pavilion, as part of the Pavilion’s Random Fridays programme. It was supported by Grants for the Arts funding from Arts Council England, South East. The performance was originally conceived and developed for Future of Sound in collaboration with Cybersonica.
