Following on from last Christmas, Lumen were commissioned once more by Leeds BID to create innovative Christmas lights using projection. Students from Leeds Arts University worked closely with James Islip to create Christmas animations to be projected on the lifting tower in Wellington Place and around Leeds City Centre.


In addition to the lifting tower, Lumen projected these animations throughout the city centre using a mobile projection bike. The bike carried a leisure battery, a Panasonic laser projector and an Apple Macbook. Needless to say, it was very heavy, but it worked great!


We also used the company van to project out of onto the John Lewis building, Belgrave Music Hall and Leeds Arts University and many other locations.


Using Madmapper projection mapping software, we created a ‘video wall’ of the animations at the lifting tower.
