This collection of 15 dramatic images of the Liver Building is taken from the celebration of its 100th anniversary, from July 22-24 2011. Czech Republic-based visual arts collective The Makula were commissioned to create this striking story, encapsulating 800 years of Liverpool’s history in a colourful, geo-mapped projection onto the face of the Liver Building.
Part of the city’s summer On the Waterfront festival, the projection, Luminous Flux, celebrated the anniversary of the Liver Building’s opening in July 1911, and the opening of the new Museum of Liverpool, which sits alongside the Three Graces. Musicians performed on each night of the festival – jazz singer Connie Lush on the Friday, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on the Saturday, and band 6ix Toys on the Sunday, as the Pier Head came alive with multi-coloured lanterns and illuminated fish in the canal.
Taking its inspiration from the uniqueness of Liverpool’s architecture, the projection flashes through 800 years of history, tracing the city from a distant rural past through slavery, the industrial revolution and world war to the Beatles and its more recent cultural renaissance.
All of our pieces are prints taken directly from one of our own original images, or from an original image from one of our featured artists.
At POTO Studios all of our art and photography presentations are made to order at our studios in Liverpool. They are priced according to the size and materials used in the finished piece.
This can vary depending on the artist, and final prices will be shown when selecting your particular image.
