Light can also Rhyme

Creeping vines and crystal mountains will animate the stonework of the Sir William Henry Bragg Building at the University of Leeds.

Inspired by the poem Crystal Avenues by Zaffar Kunial, this newly commissioned installation brings mapped visuals together with atmospheric music for vibraphone, creating an absorbing and constantly shifting reflection on natural processes of growth and crystallisation.

Visual Artist and Technician Katherine Lacey and third-year Fine Art student Hannah Guy, both from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, have created a projection piece with a narrative deeply rooted in nature's organic elements.

Ashruta Mani, a percussionist and student from the School of Music, has composed an accompanying vibraphone piece titled ‘Transcience’.

Light can also Rhyme is one of a number of a number of installations on the University of Leeds campus for this year’s Light Night Leeds: a multi-arts and light festival that takes over Leeds City Centre on 12 and 13 October.

See the Light Night Leeds programme for details of all events across the city.
