20 Rasperry Pi’s – one massive art installation

A couple of internationally renowned artists asked me for some help with their largest installation to date. As part of Hull’s City of Culture, Davy and Kristin McGuire created a large cardboard city and brought it to life with video projections.

They needed nearly 20 video players, so I created a bootable linux image for the Raspberry Pi which automatically plays a video from a standard location. I copied this to 20 memory cards, and tested them all.

The installation looked amazing and was a great success.
