After all the magic and sparkle of December’s festivities, January can be a dark and dreary time of year.
However, that is not what’s in store for the centre of Bath this week-end when – for eight days – Illuminate 2015 will be bathing the city streets in colour and hoping to attract up to 50,000 people to witness a nightly display of art, light and projection.
It will run from the 3rd to the 10th of January and from 5-8pm.
This will be the third such festival in an event that began in 2010 and was repeated two years later.
It’s been organised by Anthony Head who is a Senior Lecturer in Digital Technologies Design at Bath Spa University.
In addition to teaching, Anthony is a practicing artist and interactive designer.
I asked him to explain what Illumination Bath 2015 was all about.
