A brand-new Curated Place commission in cooperation with SPECTRA Aberdeen, Seb Lee Delisle's Lightning Catchers is a large scale laser-projected interactive experience that invited visitors to catch bolts of lightning jolting from the tower of Bury Parish Church. Holding the lightning rod in the air pointing towards the night-sky, players would anticipate the lightning strikes. Tendrils of sparks start appearing at the top of the building, followed by a huge bolt crashing down towards players.
