Alexandra Haley goes behind the scenes of Séance: A View Through the Veil, a short film shot in the museum’s Kodak Gallery.

Séance: A View Through the Veil is a short film designed and performed by Dr Nik Taylor and Ashton Carter as part of the Media of Mediumship project. It was originally intended to be a stage performance—an immersive event allowing participants to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the Victorian home séance. However, due to Covid-19, it was decided that it would be better recorded on camera and launched as a short film instead.
