Follow Me Into

Commissioned by the City of London Corporation for Bartholomew Fair

A brand new video-mapping installation from imitating the dog

Follow Me Into weaves a magical story through the City of London at night, as a child embarks on a quest across its landscape, encountering figures from the city’s past – each with a story to tell, each with a talent to pass on.

Follow Me Into asks you to look up and around but also through and beyond, to connect the present with the past, and to imagine what the future might be. 

Part of the Bartholomew Fair programme, imitating the dog use projection and spectacle to bring the city to life, creating an extraordinary journey through its forgotten streets and hidden squares.
