STILL is a spectacular large scale architectural projection and lighting artwork presented across the exterior of Wakefield Cathedral. Produced by creative studio, NOVAK, in collaboration with musician and sound artist, Ed Carter and lighting designer, Phil Supple.
STILL is inspired by the idea and act of pilgrimage, both literally and metaphorically, and how the events of recent times have required many of us to take unplanned pilgrimages of personal discovery, albeit for most, from the confines of our homes. It explores how these ‘journeys’ take us to unexpected places, with both positive and negative experiences, but ultimately providing an enlightening outcome.
The artwork, which has been created specifically for Wakefield Cathedral, will envelop the entirety of the South and East faces of the tower and the whole South façade. Revealing a series of striking visions of colour and motion, accompanied by a newly created score co-written and performed by the Youth Choir of Wakefield Cathedral.
STILL transforms this iconic and cherished building as never before.
Showings of STILL begin every 10 minutes and last approximately 7 minutes.
Light Up takes place throughout the district from 17 Nov – 5 Dec – check out the full programme here.
