Location: Court Lane
A streetlight with a memory, playfully connecting strangers through their past shadows.
Shadowing is an award-winning, playful public art installation that records and replays the shadows of those who walk underneath. Located beneath a city street lamp, the mischievous installation will hold the memories of movements by passersby, giving space for audiences to perform, dance and play before their movements are echoed back to the next visitor. Shadowing has toured cities around the world, including Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Austin, Paris, Bristol, York and London.
