Light Box: Light Box#2

Illuminate Light Festival 2018

Light Box#2 was a light installation within the telephone box outside the Cooperage Building at the Royal William Yard to celebrate Smeaton's Tower on Plymouth's Hoe.  

 

The iconic lighthouse stands as a beacon on the headland and represents the seafaring legacy of the city and the vintage K6 telephone box visually connects to the tower with its colour and social significance. Both structures are more than their function, standing as nostalgic icons of communication and humanity, embracing the social aspects of lives lived (and saved) and remembered pasts.
