Under The Influence
As part of The Chemical Brothers ‘Born In The Echoes’ World Tour, Adam Smith and I created a pair of kinetic sculptures based on tin robots to appear in the track ‘Under The Influence’. The Chemical Brothers live show has featured tin robots as part of it’s film content for many years. The concept was to bring these film characters to life, blurring the boundaries between the illusion of the screen and reality.
The robots were a big audience hit, and even popular amongst the stage crews who had the Herculean task of making them appear on festival stages around the world. Construction and design was a collaborative project between The Chemical Brothers production team, props fabricators Specialz, and video, lighting and laser suppliers.
