The piece was a cross-city video installation that featured 42 old-style television sets, which acted as a distributed map for the festival. The video featured a dishevelled Victorian magician who ushers the festival visitors to the various other attractions around the city. 36 shops, from Marks and Spencers to Waterstones, made space for a TV whilst Lancaster Museum hosted a 10-TV-set sculpture that featured a video that was synchronised across the TVs – each TV acting as a canvas for a segment of the video.

The piece was produced in collaboration with Imitating the Dog for Light Up Lancaster festival 2013.
