Shining Lives

New Lanark, Scotland. October 2017

NOVAK produced Shining Lives, a spectacular projection, sound and light  event at New Lanark World Heritage Site enjoyed by an estimated 4,000 visitors on 21 & 22 October 2017. With the stunning 230 year old buildings acting as the display surface, historic images & video footage from New Lanark and the surrounding area were brought to life on a grand scale, augmented by a soundtrack, lighting and living history which echo the life of the mills and the workers. Through this innovative event, the tangible and intangible heritage of New Lanark was combined to capture imaginations and provide a unique interpretation of this famous site.
