Neon and aluminium beacon
5 x 2 x 2M
Fire beacons are a historic means of signalling and sending messages. This series of neon light installations exist as temporary artworks and highlight an event to which everyone is invited. Within close proximity to the beacons there is a table set with a tea ceremony and food. The beacon is an invitation to eat and to talk. Hearth and Home is a collaboration with Rev Neil Lambert exploring notions of community and celebrating moments of social interaction. The events take place in key locations on a tour through Europe and result in memories which become the artwork in its true form.
