This time-lapse film by Joe Brown and Russell Cuffe shows the Illuminate Bath 2012 festival.
Illuminate Bath took place on 25-28 January 2012, and was one of the first London 2012 Cultural Olympiad events of the year. Approx. 35,000 people attended. The festival featured artworks by children, students and professional artists, including projections and installations. Many of the artworks were interactive, enabling the audience to actively participate.
Illuminate Bath is organised by Bath Spa University and RELAYS, a London 2012 legacy project based in universities across the south west of England, that aims to inspire young people to volunteer, try new sports and be creative.
The Festival Producer, Arilda Tymko and Creative Director, Anthony Head would like to thank the 200 people who helped them make the festival a huge success.

Projected video for Illuminate Bath. The concept is that once the key has been turned, "something" happens to the surroundings in Bath city centre. The idea of the video is for it to be projected onto found objects in the city; a phone box, and transforming the object into something that is more. The play of colour and sound with the movements of the abstract shapes relates to ones mind and creativity. The phone box then is turned into a box of imagination where the viewer can appreciate and allow their mind to flow.

Copyfly is an animation that represents the constant evolution of regeneration. The work takes us on a journey from paper to bin via our imaginations. The sounds used can be interpreted as both nature and machine, often similar and as fascinating as each other.
"We are Bath Spa University students studying Graphic Communication. We’re interested in the constant progression of all things natural and man-made alike. We believe transformation keeps things exciting and fresh and this is our main source of inspiration. Each member has their own way of working and favoured disciplines. This project is a true collaboration, blending influences from the organic to the machine."
