The nature of sound and light

Tracy Jones

A spectacular immersive sound and light installation is set to become one of the iconic events that form the Root 1066 International Festival.

Created by laser artist Chris Levine (best known of his holographic portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, plus laser-based images of Kate Moss and the Dalai Lama), the iy_Project: The nature of sound and light will take place on Saturday 10 September on Hastings’ pier during the opening weekend of the arts festival celebrating 950 years since the Norman Conquest. 

Simultaneously, lasers will be beamed across the channel towards St Valery – from where the Norman fleet set sail – in a symbolic invitation to our French neighbours to join in the celebrations and festivities.
