â€śThe Blocktagonâ€ť, the new season of Channel 9â€™s The Block is back and Zest Events International has been called upon to give Scotty Camâ€™s HQ a makeover.
Check out time-lapse footage of the creation of the Blocktagon artwork!
Zest was commissioned to create the centrepiece of the Sunday night room reveals at Scottyâ€™s HQ.Â While contestants listen to the feedback and scores from the judges they stand on what appears to be concrete blocks amidst a construction site, with exposed beams and pipes.Â They are in fact standing on a 3D street painting, a playful piece that will no doubt play tricks with the viewerâ€™s eyes as they decide what is real and what is not.
The work, created by Zest artists Joe Blanck, Jenny McCracken & Jai Hallam and project managed by Andi Mether was devised in conjunction with the showâ€™s production team where the brief was to create a virtual construction site for contestants to interact with.
The Octagon shape of the artwork mimics the iconic Hotel Saville being renovated by the contestants. The project took 5 days to complete.
The Blocktagonâ€™s incredible 3D artwork can be seen Sunday nights.Â We’re excited to see it and hope you are too!
