Stonehenge - Impact with light project

To celebrate UNESCO World Heritage Day on 18thApril and as part of activities to mark 100 years of care and conservation at Stonehenge, English Heritage worked with Finnish Light Artist Kari Kola to light up the iconic stone circle at the heart of the World Heritage Site.

- I illuminated the world famous stone circle overnight and into the dawn of World Heritage Day. The incredible artwork at Stonehenge is the first element of Impact with Light project which focuses attention on World Heritage Sites, aiming to increase awareness of UNESCO’s work, cultural history and global themes such as climate change. The site is truly iconic and globally one of the most significant in terms of the origins of our cultural history. The light installation at Stonehenge was realised in cooperation with English Heritage and I am deeply honoured by the way in which  the charity has embraced my work.
