LeuWebb Projects were featured in Andrew Sardone’s lovely article about Come Up To My Room’s 10 Year Anniversary (that’s us in the upper right of the pic above). 

Here’s an excerpt (below) from the NOW Magazine article. See the full article here.

 

2011: Leu Webb (Christine Leu & Alan Webb)

Originally we were hoping to do up one of the private rooms with something immersive and intimate, but we were offered the Ballroom, where the Love Design Party would be happening, instead. With Alan’s background as part of the wabi collective producing electronic music events, it was actually not a bad fit.

We centred on the idea of a cloud pulsating with the music of the party like lightning flashing in a summer sky. To create the cloud, we used a variety of weather balloons that were up to 5 feet in diameter and worked with our friends Jeff Lee and Omar Khan to install lighting inside them that would react to the music. We also wanted to integrate the DJs with the installation, so we put them in the middle of the room to let the crowd swirl around.
