“The moon's an arrant thief, And her pale fire she
snatches from the sun.”
Working as Lead Artist on this scheme has generated a variety of outcomes, the most notable being the architectural lighting programme that showcases the building. The various elements have been developed in collaboration with Helm Architects, Austin-Smith:Lord, Dodd Group and Studiotech.
I have often thought that the moon itself is my favourite lighting feature; accessible to all, startling at times, often unnoticed, but ever present. And colourful too! The colours for the lighting shows derive from annual phases of the moon's colours in different atmospheric conditions, whilst the moving light plays with the motion of a curtain and the "words of Shakespeare unfolding".
