Festival Booklet for Pound Arts Magic & Mayhem Festival in which 'Lost Morecambe' was shown.
Lost Morecambe is a portable audio-visual installation. It consists of a film of digitally animated vintage photography of Morecambe and music hall performers, which is projected into a 1/35 scale diorama of a music hall theatre. It is experienced by an audience of four. Sound and music for the work was specially created by sound artist karen Lauke, and audience members wear headphones to experience the installation immersively. The work was commissioned by The Morecambe Variety Festival and first presented in the Morecambe Winter Gardens in 2016, and subsequently at The Pound Arts 'Magic and Mayhem' Festival, Corsham.
