Giles Thacker (Video Designer)

Giles has been working in and around the world of video content creation and design for live events, music and theatre for 25 years. Initially one of the pioneer VJs, he then toured the world with electronic band Orbital, exploring the boundaries of live video projection. Later, a key player in the development of video mapping with Drive Productions and Shared Space and Light.

Always with one eye on the creative and the other eye on the technical, Giles’ rich experience has given him a unique perspective on the complexities and artistry of fusing moving image with other art forms.

Giles has worked on a host of arts-based projects with diverse artists including the World Famous, the Verve, Wildworks, Emile Sande, Zap Art and Sue Maclaine.

And equally many client-based projects for household names - Lotus, Interpol, TUC, Jaguar, Bentley, X Factor, the British Museum, TED Global, FerrariWorld

Giles is co-director of Shared Space and Light, a Brighton-based video projection company, with whom he has created work for the 2012 Paralympics, Durham Lumiere Festival, the 2018 Suffragette centenary, and the Mayflower 400 anniversary.

Giles’ most recent installation ‘Murmurations’ ran for 2 months on 2020 on the outside windows of Fabrica Gallery in Brighton.
