Into the Light

Fractals 1 v2

By Dan Shorten, Guildhall Live Events

Marvel at this video and light installation projected onto the ceiling of The Forum. Inspired by themes of growth, new beginnings and looking to the future after the challenges of lockdown, Into the Light combines geometric animations with vibrant colours and an upbeat specially commissioned soundtrack.


This work is a collaboration between students on the Video Design for Live Performance and Electronic & Produced Music programmes at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, as well as students studying Events Management and Production at City College Norwich.
