Editors DMX Fans

We were commissioned to build 6 large fans for the Editors upcoming shows, more ‘Blade Runner’ than air shifting. The intention was to use them for lighting effects with lamps positioned behind for rotating gobo like effects and lamps in front to play on to a theatrical drape behind. Additionally, the fan frames themselves would have strobes built into the corners and 3 moving lights on top of each unit.

Technically, the fan mechanism was controlled with a DMX card capable of achieving speeds from extremely slow to quite spritely including a forward and reverse setting. The steel framework and fan blades were given a distressed, rusty feel with the fan blades enclosed within a coarse steel mesh.

Each fan was self-contained on castors and just needed to be wheeled into position and plugged in. The Fans gave the Editors a unique look for their European dates, achieving a truly theatrical feel
