Dr Jane Lovell & Howard Griffin

They will be presenting their paper “Lumiere fairy-tales: Projection mapping magically real and irreal festival lightscapes” which uses case studies of events staged and visited by the authors to illustrate how projection-mapped light installations conjure, and deceive with magical reality.
