Culture Lab OnSite, Newcastle-upon-Tyne: 27.10.11-01.11.11

Culture Lab’s OnSite gallery is located in an arch below the viaduct that extends to the north of the mainline train station in Newcastle. In this commissioned installation, a pendulum containing a light source is hung within the space. A camera watches it, relaying its oscillations to a projector, which then amplifies them through projection onto a circular white screen that is painted onto the floor of the gallery. Working with the precedent of the ‘writing cell’, the installation thus, using light, inscribes within the space the vibrations of the railway viaduct as trains pass overhead. The installation was open during twilight hours between 27 October and 1 November 2011.
