An exhibition by Kinetica Artist Member Lorna Carmen McNeill incorporating fibreoptic lighting is coming to the Langley Academy, Slough. Lorna’s installation pays homage to Slough based astronomer William Herschel, whose discoveries include identifying the planet Uranus and infra-red technology which has contributed to modern fibreoptics.
The project includes a number of workshops for school students, local residents, including an Age UK choir, a group of emerging artists and the Slough business community. Workshops embrace multiple disciplines including, science, art, maths, religious education, philosophy, ecology and Museum Learning. Workshop participants and groups will be invited to respond creatively to the themes of the exhibition through music, art, song, dance and creative writing.
“The installation enacts the greater enthralling Journey of the Universe within which we all participate. It is a reminder that just as there are specific universal creative processes, they are continuously active inside all of us as well! We are literally made from the same chemical elements as stardust. We are conscious stardust”. _Lorna Carmen McNeill _
