All 350 tickets have now sold out for the talk on Project Nimbus


After 3 years research we finally projected images of Edweard Muybridge’s Horse in Motion onto the clouds direct from an aeroplane.

Our journey takes us from the initial inspiration of a US Military projection weapon through a series of prototypes developed through conversation and collaboration, pilots, scientists, makers, early cinema specialists, weapons experts, cultural theorists. artists, sailors and cloud appreciators.  All leading to a series of successful flights with the Laser Zoopraxiscope Mk6, a redesign of Edweard Muybridges’ projection technology from 1887 repurposed with a laser light source. This will be the first presentation of this project since it’s initial success in 2015, described as a ground breaking world first by New Scientist Magazine.
