Mick Stephenson (UK)

Fusion was one of four installations commissioned as part of the Lumiere Durham 2011 BRILLIANT competition for anyone based in or originally from the North East with a bright idea for an installation.

Made entirely from everyday objects, usually discarded in their millions, Mick illuminated them with colourful LED’s. Visually stunning from a distance and beautifully intriguing up close, this unique light sculpture crafted an intricate tapestry of colour and texture that both surprised and delighted as audiences discovered the variety of materials used.

Mick Stephenson has a track record of turning rubbish into beautiful illuminated art. His Litre of Light installation for LumiereDurham 2015 attracted thousands of visitors to Durham Cathedral Cloisters. More recently, he brought Litre of Light to Lumiere London 2016, a collaborative project with Central Saint Martins’ students and MyShelter Foundation.
