Light Fantastic: 2005
Venue: Perth Concert Hall
Light Fantastic was an 8 night long search light installation commisioned by Horsecross to mark the opening of the new Perth Concert Hall. 10 search lights were arranged around the rooftop of the new building, and ran a programmed show of movements and colour changes, which varied to reflect the events occuring in the concert hall that night.
The display was visible from nearly 30 miles away, and was widely reported in the Scottish press, with articles and/or images appearing in The Scotsman, Scotland on Sunday, The Times, The Sun, Daily Star, Daily Mirror, Daily Express, Metro, Dundee Courier and the Perthshire Advertiser.
Neil E. Hobbs assisted with the design and plotting of this event.
