Squidsoup, an international group of artists whose work combines sounds, physical space and virtual worlds to produce immersive and emotive headspaces where participants take an active role in the experience, have created two installations at the Cathedral as part of the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary Celebrations.
Situated in the North Porch, the main installation called Enlightenment (pictured above) is made up of around 6,000 points of light which are suspended from below the porch ceiling. Visitors are able to move into this body of light and as they pass through they become active participants in what the Squidsoup creative lead, Anthony Rowe, calls a ‘Mixed reality interplay between real and virtual’. The lights respond to people’s presence, creating abstract forms in physical space and enveloping the viewer in a stimulating, virtual world. It is best viewed after dark.
