As proud sponsors of Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios, part of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival, we spent the day at one of the opening events, capturing a time-lapse of the build of The People’s Tower.
The video was shot using the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition using the inbuilt time-lapse function. The event started at 10am on Saturday the 10th of May, and finished at 6pm that evening. Countless volunteers helped to build the boxes during the days leading up to the event, and constructed the tower throughout the day. French artist Olivier Grossetête is the architect as these community builders work together, igniting imaginations and reminiscing on the childhood wonder of playing with an empty cardboard box. The structure slowly becomes a spectacle to behold as a sky-scraping tower emerges, creating a magnificent cardboard reflection of St Peter Mancroft Church.
