St Nicholas' Waves

The construction of St Nicholas church began in the 12th century when the expansion of the town, which would finish in the 19th century, was taking place. It became the church with the second largest number of parishioners after St Margaret’s. The church is distinctive for its tall belfry which is therefore used as a projection screen. The belfry emits unpredictable and vibrant lights throughout the length of the building, with waves moving and distorting. The sensorial animation reacts to the environment near the clock tower. In fact several sensors have been placed around the clocks and in the environs of the Chapel. This collection of sound waves interacts directly with the projection. The movements thus generated are different every evening, and reflect the rhythm of Kings Lynn. This light show thus disturbs the gaze of spectators as they survey this majestic structure.
