Commissioned by Light Up The North UK Festival Network, Mirror Stage is a specially produced large-scale outdoor light installation shown at four festivals to public and critical acclaim: Light Night Leeds, Lightwaves Salford Quays, Light up Lancaster & Lightpool Blackpool.
A kaleidoscope of moving image, colour and light, this immersive environment invites viewers to engage with new interpretations of the shapes and forms of home. Featuring dual projections with transparent and reflective media, this large scale immersive installation contemplates the critical potentials of home as a site of identity and belonging – a site and sight where the familiar becomes strange.
Provoking fresh dialogues around ideas of inside/outside, memory/imagination, and the increasingly technologised relation of home/work, Mirror Stage considers what it means to be ‘at home’ in the 21st Century.
Mirror Stage is now available for touring across the UK and abroad
