This Saturday night, as the light of the day dims and night falls, beautiful things begin to happen across 7 sites in Canning Town, London. Projections, interactive celestial art installations, a hyperreal hearthside with storytelling and performance and artists showcasing a range of art forms in innovative urban spaces.
My piece ‘Campus Stellae: Field of Stars’ will be a quiet feature in this extravaganza based on fire and stars.
I can’t wait.
Incredible skills, beautiful images..my heart feels all juicy: which is officially one of the functions of art..
Look at the work of this man-
‘Campus Stellae: Field of Stars’, a work I made as part of The Waking Path event at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, is to now be a part of Light Night 2014, a beautiful looking, exciting looking, one night only event across 9 sites in Canning Town, London. Stoked!
..’This year’s theme of ‘The Fire and the Stars’ is centred on the ancient tradition amongst many communities of gazing into flames and up at the stars, whilst telling stories and freeing our creativity. Artists will create spectacular light installations, performances, music and puppetry and invite audiences to share stories.’

The stars are tracings of points taken from the myriad of maps I used, on the ancient route of a walk I took. They are a shimmer of significance created from plotting places that had meaning: they are the constellation of my walk.
