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.
Around the corner was Symphony of Light, by Anthony Head, Diego Garcia de Enterria Diaz and Elena Saenz de la Torre Loras. This was an interactive visual and musical instrument, which on the night we went was in the form of an interactive game. It was very clever!
The famous Pulteney Bridge was home to Flat Georgians, by Petra Freeman and Tim Rolt. The projection had been created with drawings from local primary school children, and it was quite bizarre and entertaining! It reminded me a little of the story of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, with all the processions of dancing ladies in long dresses.
The Great Bath was illuminated with coloured lights which really highlighted the steam rising into the chilly air.
There were glass boxes with projection of different Roman statues and artefacts around the edge of the Great Bath, and also projections onto the water! It gave a fascinating effect.
The combination of the beautiful, ancient building and the intriguing lights and projections made for an awe inspiring, magical experience.
