Sailing Juletree (2015)

A 10 meter tall yule/christmas tree fitted with 2000 individually controlled LEDs sailing through the harbour. Tall enough to need the bridges opened.

The tree was placed 3 different spots in the harbour during december. On each of the moves, I had musicians playing under the tree.

The project got a little bit of funding from Kulturhavn 365, but took many many hours to complete. Each day, all of december, i visited the tree to recharge the batteries for the light.

Max Tobiassen has made a very good article about the whole project.

Some sketches from the development

Funny to see how the float design changed along the way.
