Light installation, Illuminate York, York City Council.
Commissioned to design and install a light installation for York’s most famous street The Shambles, as part of the city’s annual festival of light. The Shambles is one of Europe’s best preserved medieval streets. The installation, titled Join The Revolution, consisted of suspending 25 rotating mirror balls along the entire length of the street. By day the mirrored glitter balls challenged our idea of what an historic environment should look like and by night they transform the street into an immersive snow storm of light. The installation gained national recognition and was visited by over 80,000 people.
