Context

Daresbury Science Park incorporates five feature gardens all conncted by a linear pathway and contains number of artworks crafted in glass, stone and steel.

Concept

All the artworks have light as a common theme: as a formal principle and as a metaphor. As a formal principle all of the pieces make use of light in some way. As a metaphor, light as ‘enlightenment’ suggested related themes.

The path through the park carries the idea of a pathway of light, using the 5 colours in the order they appear in the electromagnetic spectrum. First there is a red seating area, then a yellow, then green, then blue and lastly violet.

The artworks have been crafted from glass, stone and steel. This simple palette allows the imagery to shine. The use of glass creates permanent colour within the park, which either casts coloured shadows in the sunshine, or captures the movement of the clouds on an overcast day.
