In the end, inevitably I suppose, some events were more successful than others. Some appeared finished whilst others, like the building itself, appeared to be in the process of development. Some were highly sophisticated, and well researched, requiring considerable artistry and expertise, others needed only limited skills in their execution. I was particularly impressed by an extraordinarily beautiful film sequence involving a horse and water that was on show in one of the upstairs rooms. Not only were the images themselves projected onto the crumbling wall of the room, in itself creating a lovely and unusual effect, but it appeared as though the projections themselves had been re-filmed having first been projected onto the dust-sheets that covered the furniture that was stacked up against the side walls.
