Flown – Lightwork for “Illuminating York”

I’m just starting work on building ‘Flown’ which is going to be a large scale installation for the light festival ‘Illuminating York’ running from 27th – 31st October 2015.

The whole structure is going to be hand cut and folded (all 20 meters of it made from 720 pieces! ). The forms are going to be lit with LED’s running behaviours developed with Dave Everitt, Sean Clarke and Graeme Stuart.

It’s the first time I’ve built something this big by hand and it is taking my drawing practice into 3D. Starting to make it is like stepping into a lake to swim to the other shore knowing that at some point I will be too far to swim back..so here goes I’m dipping my toe in.
