Nottingham Line of Light Art Installation

‘Line of Light’, created by artist Jo Fairfax, projects five-word poems by writers including Byron, Lawrence and Ovid, as well as current Nottinghamshire residents, onto the underside of the Karlsruhe Friendship Bridge over Station Street. Two sets of parallel lines, mirroring the tram tracks above, will light up and pulse whenever a tram goes overhead. Patterns of light will continue under the tram tracks to the canal, finishing with a projection of Nottingham lace. 

The poems will change every day for a year and will include suggestions or specially written works from other UNESCO Cities of Literature and over 100 members of the public.

“The inspiration for ‘Line of Light’ comes directly from Nottingham and the exact location was a significant influence on the overall design.  I also wanted to celebrate the wonderfully rich literary position that Nottingham holds."
JO FAIRFAX, ARTIST
