Light Calling laser art event by Jo Fairfax took place on Monday evening May 7th 2012 on Borough Hill, Daventry in torrential rain. Four 7.8w lasers, sited on the four massive concrete bases of the old transmitter, created a vast pyramid of light referencing the old transmitter masts which once graced this fantastic site until the final BBC World Service transmission from here 20 years ago.
This event and images are part of Breath of Fresh Air’s ‘Cargoes’ project run by Ignite! and supported by Northamptonshire County Council and Daventry District Council.
On the night local historian David Adams lead the public on an historical walk around the site before the lights went on and then Chrys Allen undertook a nocturnal art walk concluding at the laser pyramid.
The lasers collided with low flying clouds and the images above were captured by Jo Fairfax, Andrew Hilton, Stu Phipps and SteveRSVR.
