Projection

An interactive light work for the Cotton Exchange in Blackburn.

Artist Jen Kagan, in collaboration with art students from Blackburn College, is creating an interactive light work for the Cotton Exchange in Blackburn.

Projection will light up this magnificent space that has lain dark and dormant for several years, highlighting its future as a beacon for the town. Used as a cinema for many years, the Exchange once again flickers with light and moving images but this time the stars are the young people of Blackburn.

Passers by are invited to bring the building to life by pressing the doorbells you can find on nearby lamp posts, illuminating the building with changing projections that capture the creative lives of our younger residents.

Projection will launch on 15th December as part of Blackburn Light Festival and continue until March 2019.
