LUMIERE DURHAM 2009
Created by Mark Anderson, Anne Bean, Jony Easterby, Ulf Mark Pedersen, Kirsten Reynolds
Originally commissioned by Jo Ross at Oxford Contemporary Music in collaboration with University of Oxford Botanic Garden.
Deep within Durham University Botanic Garden, Power Plant blended old and new technologies to create a nocturnal trail of sound and light.
Old gramophones spun, flowerbeds came to life and insects cast moving shadows. A series of sometimes intimate and sometimes vast art works emerged from natural surroundings creating a strange, thoughtful and intoxicating atmosphere.
Power Plant has received critical acclaim at major festivals around the world including Sydney Festival, Hong Kong Arts Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and Liverpool European Capital of Culture 2008.
