Fabrics and drapery manufacturer J&C Joel helped to produce an interactive art installation at PLASA 2016 - annual exhibition for the international live entertainment technology industry.

The Sowerby Bridge based firm contributed to ‘Lens through a Stereogram’ – an installation which was part of the Exploratorium at the event.

The Exploratorium was a maze which explored the notion of visual and sound perception, in particular in relation to dementia.

The installation is also being developed as part of a wider project called, ‘I am still here’, in which a series of interactive art installations investigate how people are affected by dementia.

J&C Joel supplied black wool serge to form the walls and ceiling for the space, and projection screens, which were used as part of the installation.

Fiona Blackett, business development manager at J&C Joel said: “We were extremely proud to support ‘Lens through a Stereogram’. When we were contacted about the initiative, we knew it was something we would want to be involved in, as the fight against dementia is something close to our hearts.

“The installation was brilliant, it was received really well by visitors and it was amazing to have helped bring it together.

“We always endeavour to support good causes in any way we can.”
