As far as the lampshades go, we are in the process of building a new workshop here in Norwich.
We are still recovering from the intense effort of the construction and showing of this huge and totally unique artwork. It took well over 3000 man-hours to construct, but was well worth it.
See some of the comments by clicking here and by clicking on the 'Wax Room' link at the foot of the page.
Over 1600 people came to see the room in the 3 weeks it was sited in the Meadows during the Fringe. We also had some unwelcome drunken guests in the small hours, mainly at the weekends. The police had to be called twice by the heroic Ross.
The Desert Wall
Despite overwhelming positive responses from all who immersed themselves in the intense colour and music of the 'Wax Room', we have not yet found a permanent or semi-permanent site for it. Though we do have high hopes for a collaboration with Out of the Blue's putative new site in Dalmeny St. Edinburgh.
The Snow Wall
Amazingly Disney from Florida sent a couple of talent scouts down with whom I have been in touch, though, again, nothing solid has emerged yet.
