Trip the Light Fantastic

Trip the Light Fantastic

The National Glass Centre,
Sunderland, UK
10 February – 3- April 2006

An exhibition of five artists and designers whose work with glass, lighting, sound, mixed media and animation all focused on the elusive qualities of light in their practice, Trip the Light Fantastic featured a three-dimensional composition by Martyn Ware of Illustrious.

Working in collaboration with lighting designer Pip Rhodes, Ware created a three-dimensional synaesthetic soundscape to accompany a room immersed in pure monochromatic colour, that swept through the spectrum over a one hour period.

For the project, multiple digital projectors were used to cast light upon a glass sculpture specially designed by Illustrious and created by the glass artists from the museum itself.
