Images from Atari games like the legendary Pacman danced flashed across the historic building. They were part of a showcase of experimental sight and sound projections promoted by Cambridge-based arts collective Collusion. As well as the Custom House show, artists used images, sounds and data in projects on show at the Guildhall of St George, Greyfriars Tower and Tuesday Market Place.

Rachel Drury, director of Collusion said: 'This project has attracted some amazing creative talent from in and around the King's Lynn area. The teams have built on their existing skills and knowledge through the masterclasses and subsequent experimentation to come up with a set of outstanding creative projects. We're looking forward to seeing the public response and considering the next steps'.
