Working on my recent commission for Lumiere projects: a light festival in Durham. I am collaborating with the University of Durham Earth Scientists on this, and will be using some of their Lidar scans of local geological formations as part of the work. I will also be making drawings of beautiful coral fossils found in the local limestone, because – can you believe it – the geology of Durham was once a tropical sea! So happy to have this wonderful folly as the place where the work will be shown in November.
