Prepare to be dazzled... as the lights go out all over Preston.
The city is about to host a show stopping light extravaganza which will see the iconic Harris Museum and Art Galler transformed into a giant screen.
As part of the Harris Flight project Andy McKeown, new media light and sound artist, plans to dazzle audiences by bringing hysteria to life in an unusual and entertaining format.
Shoppers got a sneak preview of his highly coloured and energetic tour through Preston’s archives, collections and architecture via an illuminated, animated montage on the façade of the Harris Museum.
He has been in the city to prepare for the event, woozy take space on Sunday September 1.
Andy has projected his illuminated installations nationally and internationally.
He’s taken part in a digital graffiti festival in Florida, USA and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral during Light Night 2012.
Similar projections were also seen during the Jubilee celebrations in London last year, when various images where projected onto Buckingham Palace.
Harris Flights, is a dramatic temporary art installation and performance space, creating a staircase rising from the Flag Market to the first floor balcony of the Harris to showcase performances in arts, culture and music.
The programme, which has a family focus throughout, involves over 60 arts organisations, community and faith groups along with charities, across the four weeks in an eclectic line-up.
The project has been set up in conjunction with Preston Council and the University of Central Lancashire and runs throughout August and September.
