A unique art project came to Huyton Village Centre last week for two days (22 and 23 November).
The project – called The Garish Sun – transformed an empty shop unit into a spectacular display using the latest digital technology.
Visitors were invited to step inside and be blown away by this short audio-visual journey exploring the themes of constellations, space and astral bodies.
Artist Sam Wiehl worked with local residents and community groups to develop the audio-visual installation that used cutting edge technologies in light and sound.
The project took its inspiration from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet “turn him into stars and form a constellation in his image.”
Almost 2,500 people came along to experience the journey during the two days and feedback included:
“Loved it. I felt like I was transported somewhere else whilst watching it.”
“Couldn’t stop watching it!”
The Garish Sun is one of six “Constellations Presents” events taking place across the Liverpool City Region – find out more at www.constellationslcr.co.uk.
