Illuminate 2015 Light Projection Event in Bath

Last week I went to an amazing light projection show called Illuminate 2015. Bath Spa University students had worked with artists to create large scale light installations, which were projected onto some of the historic buildings in Bath city centre.

The entrance of the Roman Baths was lit up with Elastic City Spacey by Leila Sujir, an interesting projection which could be viewed through 3D glasses! It had footage of strutting peacocks, images of falling peacock feathers, and tumbling coins, taken from images of the Beau Street Hoard, which reminded me of an arcade game. I did take a peek through the 3D glasses and it looked like the coins and feathers were right in front of my face-very effective.
