Northampton LIGHTHOUSE – marking 2012 hours to go before the opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games

The latest FLOW commission – Northampton LIGHTHOUSE – takes place this coming Friday 4th & Saturday 5th May from 9pm – 11.30pm marking 2012 hours to go before the official opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Come and see the National Lift Tower in Northampton transformed through high powered LED light and laser beams.

Listen to Jo Fairfax talking about the installation here on BBC Radio Northampton at 2:52:30 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/p00qr0hj

Northampton LIGHTHOUSE is supported by Arts Council England, Northamptonshire County Council, Northampton Borough Council, Legacy Trust UK, Laser Hire London and Stage Right Productions.

A further new laser art installation Light Calling by Jo Fairfax and the FLOW team takes place on Monday 7th May Bank Holiday at Borough Hill in Daventry.  See earlier post below for more details.

Many thanks to Mark Kidsley for his excellent photo (above).  Please submit comments to this website and photos to the Flickr Group Pool FLOW Northamptonshire.

All the best,

FLOW

  1. This is great and a really wonderful idea. There should be a permanent light/laser up there to make what is already a fantastic landmark even better. With it being nicknamed the ‘Northampton Lighthouse’ it would be appropriate.
