  • The very first Octorama was part of the People and Place Exhibition in 2003
  • Since then it has been seen many times and the idea has developed. We started to transmit the sounds from a computer using Propellerheads Reason and an 8 output Soundcard
  • In 2006 we produced the Dreams Hopes and Wishes exhibition with Ormesby Comprehensive.
  • The Octorama is a multi media digital arts installation with 8 screens and 8 speakers. This is our model. The real one will be 14 metres in diameter
  • It was proposed that we run an Exhibition at Loftus Town Hall to tie in with Heritage Open Days
  • It was time to see if we could make the process portable. Here a demonstration on the theory of using waste pipe for the construction.
  • We experimented and decided it could be done
  • And so a large quantity of waste pipe was purchased.
  • And delivered to Loftus Town Hall
  • Where we made several experimental builds
  • A nd purchased extra goods at the local hardware store
  • Part of the build took place elsewhere
  • Many of the team to build the installation are Loftus Town Councillors
  • The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland Visits
  • Cllr Linda Bell, Mayor of Loftus and Paul Davies of East Cleveland Community Development
