  • New art projections, King’s Lynn town centre 

    29 Sept - 1st Oct 2017: Collusion is pleased to present a one-off showcase of four exciting, experimental arts projects working with the projectors in King’s Lynn town centre. For one weekend only, as dusk falls over the town, Collusion invites you to experience and interact directly with these unique works.

    Sounds, images, data, film and archives feature in the prototype projects created by four teams of artists and creative professionals for the Lynn Lumiere light projection sites. 

    Over four months, the teams have collaborated to create these projects, which will be shown 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.
