What's it about?

In our last major commission for 2017, and as a challenging companion piece to Made in Hull, Jason Bruges Studio will shine an enquiring light through Hull’s Old Town.

This ambitious intervention will produce a playful manipulation of light, responding to the city’s unique geometries and architecture, revealing unseen spaces and pinpointing unconsidered details.

The work, accompanied by new soundscapes, seeks to propel us into a bright and yet unknown future, engaging everyone in arguably the most important questions of the year for Hull and the nation: What kind of place do we wish to live in? What role should culture play? Where do we go from here?

Jason Bruges Studio is critically acclaimed for producing innovative light installations in site-specific environments across the globe.

The four pieces and locations are:

BEVERLEY GATE – THE GATEKEEPERS

Marking what was once the entrance to Hull, the six gatekeeper robots have been designed to draw in visitors with light signals close to the waters of Princes Quay.

Visible from Queen Victoria Square and Whitefriargate, the installation was designed in response to this important historical site, taking inspiration from navigation beacons and maritime signalling devices. This modern interpretation sees the gatekeepers communicating and welcoming visitors to the excitement that awaits at the three remaining Old Town installations.

TRINITY SQUARE – AN INQUISITIVE ACQUAINTANCE

As an important social space in the heart of Hull’s Old Town, Trinity Square plays host to nine robots presenting a choreographed performance composed of light and sound which puts the audience at the centre of the show.

This playful encounter encourages viewers to explore the relationship between the square’s reflecting pools, surrounding architecture and the light and sound filling the space. Visitors are encouraged to wander amongst the plinths and ponder the question – where do we go from here?

MUSEUM GARDENS – COLLABORATION

In the garden setting of the Streetlife Museum, five robots awaken from their old factory mode to perform together and demonstrate intelligence through collaboration. The robots will pass light beams between each other and form large moving objects in the space. This piece is fast and dynamic and should be viewed from a distance for the full wow-factor.

WILBERFORCE HOUSE – CONVERSATION

Hidden behind the walls of the enclosed garden at Wilberforce House, a curious conversation between a robot and William Wilberforce plays out. Peeking through the gate, or catching glimpses of the robot revealing itself above the wall, visitors can observe animated gestures created through light and shadow.

As a site of national historical significance, what better place to ask the question – where do we go from here?
