The National Trust at Lacock Abbey together with Enlightened lighting have installed a temporary installation called "Into the Light".
The fusion of light and shadows, using LED lighting and the buildings architecture, has brought emotion and mood to the once occupied rooms of the cloisters and Abbey. Light has been utilised to give the illusion of an inhabited Abbey - footsteps, a roaring fire and poignant words all find their place within the architecture of the Cloisters, with ever-changing illuminations.
Using 400w MBI Floods and LED Floods the effect was carefully designed by our in house designer Derek Lee to work with the natural daylight that creates impressive light sculptures. Ever changing lights link the installation together and give a simple concept seen throughout the whole cloisters, which makes the idea an epic visual feast.
Into the Light runs from 12th- 27th January with visitors urged to spend time in the Cloisters widening their senses and visual field as they explore the magnificent National Trust property.
"The idea of a light installation was interesting, but with the opportunity to explore the history and use of the building to me made it more about the property than an imposed lighting installation. I believe the building and lighting work effectively together to widen the visitors' experience of the venue. This has been achieved with efficient teamwork between Enlightened Lighting and the house team at Lacock Abbey." (Derek Lee, lighting designer for Enlightened Lightning)
