White Pearl

  • Royal Court Theatre, London, 2019

In Singapore, Clearday™ has developed from a small start-up company to a leading international cosmetic brand in less than a year. But when a draft of the company’s latest skin cream advert is leaked, the video goes viral globally for all the wrong reasons. YouTube views are in the thousands and keep climbing; anger is building on social media; and journalists are starting to cover the story. This is an international PR nightmare; the company cannot be seen to be racist, they’ve got to get it taken down before America wakes up.

White Pearl featured video design by Ian William Galloway, including projections of real comments taken from the internet and a full-height flying LED wall central to the space and used throughout.
