Luminous Motion

Winchester Cathedral with Luminous Motion

Luminous motion (2002) is a reactive light sculpture created for the Winchester Light Art Project. It was installed at the end of November 2002 in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral and uses mobile telephone technology and text messaging to allow passers-by to influence the display.

It is a six metre column of mirrored stainless steel, pierced by 500 fibre-optic light points and the sculpture changes colour according to text messages sent by members of the public.

To change the colour and light patterns on luminous motion text one of these words to 07980 732 147: White, Blue, Indigo, Magenta, Breathe, Eyepop, Lightdancer or Radiance.
