Lumen were invited by the Brontë Parsonage Museum to install a new immersive installation in the cellar of the Brontë Parsonage. The installation is titled ‘How My Light is Spent‘ and is the vision of screenwriter Frank Cottrell-Boyce. The installation is a collaboration of artist Jo Pocock of The Lantern Company, Illuminos and Lumen.
Lumen were asked to record audio of spoken word by voice actors. They were recorded in a professionally treated production room, using high quality equipment and then they were edited and processed in post-production.
Illuminos created the video content and then consolidated the audio and video content together to load onto the playback system.
Lumen then embarked on the installation in the cellar. Six Genelec 8020’s were placed on stands around the room in a surround sound layout and the projector was installed on the ceiling shooting onto the bed. Illuminos setup the playback system and pico projectors and Jo Pocock put props around the room.
