The Hall is an installation piece by lighting designer and live visual artist Emmanuel Biard (EMN) and engineer David Leonard, commissioned by FutureEverything and the Royal Northern College of Music.

Premiered at the 2014 FutureEverything Festival in the RNCM Studio Theatre, The Hall features mirrors, mechanics, lasers, optics and new structures, consisting of 2 gigantic circular flexible mirrors sealed into a frame with vacuum pumps. It is an investigation into the sensation of how scale and distance are perceived and judged by the human brain, inviting the audience to place themselves into the path of the light beams, into the void of this collimated reflection loop, framed by a thin wall of light.
