KOI Judges’ comments


“I really liked this. The effort to conceal the lighting fixtures is good, innovative event. Really high contrast lighting effects and video content made the piece incredibly immersive.”

Jonny Milmer


“A fantastic example of new technology pushing the boundaries of our industry. Cate and Mike skillfully concealed lighting fixtures in a performance environment designed for live, 360-degree ‘virtual reality’ broadcast, whilst ensuring the artist was well-lit at all times.”
