Royal River
Power, Pagentry and the Thames

National Maritime Museum
Exhibition website >

Large video installation produced for Newangle Productions
25 metre projection mapped across 8 projectors

Magnificent gilded barges, liverymen in their finest uniforms, the splendour of lavish celebrations: the Thames is the 'Royal River', used for centuries by British monarchs to involve the people in ceremony and festivities displaying their regal status. For hundreds of years this famous royal river has been host to the pageantry of coronations, processions of boats, and other events which helped tie people closer to the Crown and to London as Britain’s capital.

Working with Land Design Studios, Newangle produced three single screen animations and a large video wall to agument the stories behind the themes and objects in the exhibition.
