At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

Travelling Light Circus- Pendulum Wave Machine

Twenty steel balls seem to float, like baubles of mercury, before being set in motion to become a harmonious wave of dreamy beauty as the silver spheres fall mysteriously into line, then dissolve into chaos.
Output Arts- Storm Coming
5pm-9pm Minster Grounds
An audio visual installation using light cubes synchronised to a recording of a passing storm. The lights respond to each nuance – gently flickering with the approaching rain, flashing with each crash and boom.

The Celestial Sound Cloud - a beautiful digital sound and light installation hung above the audience, creating a space to discover a galaxy of voice and illumination.
