The Corn Exchange - WE RISE by Greenaway & Greenaway

About the Artwork

1.3 Seconds by Guillaume Marmin

With the space travel theme in mind, the installation by Guillaume Marmin gets its name from the time it takes for light to travel from the earth to the moon at a velocity of 300 000km/s. Originally inspired by the church’s columns, stained glass windows and overall gothic style, visitors are given glimpses of the architectural details as lights flash and illuminate the grand space of the Minster.

The contrast between the darkness and flashes of light immerses the audience in an almost overwhelming experience that intends to play with the perception of the existing space.

WE RISE by Greenaway & Greenaway

Greenaway & Greenaway are creating a spectacle that has been commissioned by Right Up Our Street for the DN Festival of Light central artwork to be projected on the Corn Exchange in November. This piece is about telling the story of Doncaster through the eyes of the people, creating a unique film.

Spoken word narration by Toria Garbutt and GSD.
