Nottingham lighting installation completed

The installation of the Nottingham lights under the Station Street tram bridge, down Trent Street and under the canal arch is now complete. The lights under the bridge and tram overhang change colour with different pattern over lays so that the pattern and form are never repeated from hour to hour, evening to evening, week to week, year to year.

As the trams pass overhead they activate new patterns under the bridge moving in the direction of the tram. 

The canal arch also changes colour over the water but this is slower and the gobo projection of Nottingham lace stays the same but looks different as the gentle floods change colour. 

The poems are all up and ready now and the piece is switched off until a September launch.

Here are some quick pictures from last night. Andrew Hilton will be photographing and filming the piece properly. My aim is for Andrew to photograph every single projected to poem to make a collection.

Massive thanks again go to Duncan Turner. A gem of a man. Also to Sharon Scaniglia and Nottingham City Council.
