Artist shines light on link between science and theatre

Chromatic Play exhibition at heritage space Guildford Castle

In Chromatic Play, the Great Tower is inhabited by light sculptures that shift and change in colour as you move around them. Experience Guildford Castle in a new light in this artistic sculpture, part of a research project by academics in Arts, Engineering, Sociology and Physics at Surrey, who are exploring the science, performance and experience of light in the environment.

Dr Stuart Andrews, Subject Leader in Theatre Studies at the University of Surrey, said:
Light transforms our lives, it affects how we experience the world and, ultimately, how we live.  In the Surrey Light Project, we’re not just interested in how light can be used more efficiently or effectively, but how it transforms the everyday.  Working with Tine Bech has been great because it’s enabled us to develop a project that combines the science and art of light in a highly engaging and interactive installation.
