. November 7, 2012

Blue Moon on a Platter will be made of thousands of CDs pinned to the undulating banks of the amphitheatre, which measures 28 meters across. In the centre, a ‘Moon’ measuring 1.5m in diameter will contain 150 spheres containing coiled optic fibres within them. The ‘Moon’ glows with blue light, which is passed along the fibre optics via a metal halide projector, and the ‘moonlight’ will be refracted and glitter across the CDs spreading in a carpet around it. Angel of Light will be created by laying out approximately 50,000 CDs in a very precise circle across the North Front, the circle dissecting each avenue, so you will literally be able to walk through this sculpture. –
