Light installation artwork — Video projection, water screen.
Commissioned by Collective Cymru / National Theatre Wales for Galwad, Unboxed Festival 2022
The work, installed on a lake in the slate mountains of Blaenau Ffestiniog (Wales) 2022, was central to the finale of an ambitious week-long live performance event that was televised on Sky Arts
The piece, representing disruption in space-time, manifests as a 35m diameter light spectacle of evolving aurora & nebula-like atmospheric conditions through which the main character in the live broadcast connects with her future self.
The project was a huge undertaking for all involved and an honour & pleasure to contribute to.
