SET UP TIME & PARAMETERS

Suitable Space: Needs to be very dark and have no fixed seating. Suits a gallery or dark theatre space without stage and without fixed seating, and where the audience can move around my equipment set up. I generally set up in the middle of the room, closer to the screen than the back of the room. Distance from projectors to screen needs to be minimum 10m.
