LUMIERE DURHAM 2015
The story of the birth of modern cosmology from the 12th century until the present day told in a stunning son et lumiere for the façade of Durham Cathedral.
Art met science in this daring collaboration between Ross Ashton and cosmologists and historians at Durham University, including world-renowned cosmologist Professor Carlos Frenk, with sound designer John del’Nero and composer Isobel Waller-Bridge. The World Machine charted the development of ideas about the origin of the Universe in a breathtaking projection onto Durham Cathedral.
Ross Ashton and John del’Nero also created Crown of Light for Lumiere Durham 2009, 2011, 2013.
