• Step into #Wisbech2117!

    November 2017: This is Wisbech but not as you know it!

    Collusion worked with creatives, technologies and the community in Wisbech to develop a brand new web app, Brink of the Future, that uses augmented reality and open source technology. It’s the first app of its kind to animate augments created using VR technology, Google Blocks, and developed to be accessible on multiple devices.

    Collusion creative associates, Jamie Gledhill (web development), Lucy Sheerman (lead artist) and Lee Mason (digital artist) worked with Tin Fish, a creative agency based in Wisbech to map the story zones and bring the story to life. 

    The programme is supported by Arts Council England, the Greater Cambridge, Greater Peterborough LEP, and tech partners, Arm and Cambridge Consultants. In addition, The Brink of the Future is supported by Market Place, the Creative People & Places initiative for Fenland and Forest Heath and Tin Fish Creative Communications.

  • King’s Lynn town centre lights up!

    September 2017: Did you join us to play giant Pac-Man on Customs House or step through smoke and light projections at Greyfriars Tower? On Friday 29th September, for one weekend only, Collusion presented a one-off showcase of four exciting, experimental arts projects working with the projectors in King’s Lynn town centre. Hoards of people travelled across the region to experience and interact directly with these unique works.

    Developed over four months, these prototype projects were created by four teams of artists and creative professionals for the Lynn Lumiere light projection sites at the Tuesday Market Place, the Custom House, Greyfriars Tower and King’s Lynn Arts Centre. Working closely with King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, Collusion has supported the teams to test early-stage ideas, experiment and push the boundaries of live data and projection technologies placed around King’s Lynn town centre.
