Part of BellArtLabs project for Collusion‘s King’s Lynn R&D project. The brief was to utilise the town’s outdoor projectors to showcase new work using the rich history of King’s Lynn for inspiration. The river and port of King’s Lynn were our sources for data and visuals.
Processing was used to make a visualisation of King’s Lynn tidal data.
King’s Lynn was part of the Hanseatic league of ports and luckily many of the port books have been categorised. This data was used to create a video (again using processing) to illustrate the trade to and from the port in 1614.
We also used 16mm footage of the Denver sluice complex from the 1970’s which was projected onto layers of gauze inside part of the King’s Lynn art centre.
Thanks again to Dan Pollard at Denver sluice and for his help.
