BP Trojan Horse

This project, orchestrated by performance activists BP or Not BP featured a 13 ft Trojan Horse made from recycled pallets and fence slats being wheeled into the grounds of the British Museum in protest of BP’s continued sponsorship of the museum.

I was brought onto this project to interpret the vision of project leader Phill Ball. My responsibilities for this project revolved around the design and fabrication of the head of the horse and it’s special effects (wiggling of the ears, fog through it’s nostrils, and glowing eyes. Eyes electronics assisted by Ben Thwaites .
