The Big Digital Project – Greater Manchester – 2014
The Big Digital Project was an externalGalleries project working across the 10 towns that make up Greater Manchester.
The project saw a grand finale following 10 individual project events across the county over 30 days.
externalGalleries collaboration first worked together in 2008/9 when Artist Peter Walker, Composer David Harper were introduced to New Media Artist Andy McKeown. The team came together to develop a large scale son et lumiere to celebrate the tercentenary of Dr Johnson Birth, alongside a wide ranging community engagement project, and have worked collaboratively on a number of high profile events nationally, centre primarily around projects with a community engagement element – leading to a large scale projection event. These projects utilised original bespoke software designed by Andy McKeown and were staged by Wild Strawberry Interactive Mulitmeida LTD.
