UoN technology to light up Newcastle

The tale of Newcastle’s oldest street includes convict gangs and bearded ladies pouring beers and these stories, along with those of local filmmakers, will light up the walls of Watt Street when City Evolutions launches next month. The project is a landmark contemporary art project and features a series of light installations using cutting edge interactive technology developed by students at the University of Newcastle.
