Art Installations

Where Light Falls – Coventry Cathedral

The use of high resolution stained glass images projected onto buildings is becoming more commonplace with York Minster leading the way (HERE) through the creative brilliance of artist Ross Ashton and Karen Monid, together with The Projection Studio.

Historic England, working with the Poetry Society and Double Take Projections have created two free experiences of light, history and poetry:

  • St Paul’s Cathedral – Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 October 2019
  • Coventry Cathedral – Thursday 14 – Saturday 16 November 2019

Next week sees the opening of the Coventry Cathedral experience.  Using the buildings as the screen for these impressive installations, Where Light Falls tells the story of those who fought to save the medieval Cathedral when it was bombed in the German raid of 14 November 1940.  The spire of the old cathedral will be the focus of animations inspired by stained glass.

Such installations continue to remind me of the pertinence of stained glass window photography and its appreciation by the public.  While I cannot possible create art installations of this scale, it is always good to know what could be achievable were pockets sufficiently deep.
