Volatile Light is a mesmerising sound and light installation, originally commissioned by Junction Goole.

Featuring an array of specially made machines, LED lights will be attached to rotating arms, levers and cranks to weave a series of eccentric curves, sweeping arcs and hectic scribbles in the darkened gallery space. Utilising an innovative combination of computer software, the lights will then be transformed into a complex mixture of overlapping light trails and patterns. Audiences will experience an intimate, all enveloping combination of light and sound by placing themselves at the centre of a miniature, wrap around universe of moving lights and sounds.

Workshops took place at the Civic exploring how to create virtual world sculpture and real world mechanical light sculptures.
