Lumen at Shuffle Festival

I'm showing two pieces at Lumen, an exhibition themed around  light at St Clements as part of Danny Boyle's Shuffle Festival
The Time Machine Sarah Sparkes 2013 (oak, clock movement, infinity illusion, LEDs)
My work NEVER AFRAID - giant killer, 2010, (led lights, wood, paint), electricity) over the Entrance to the Lumen Exhibition
 St Clements was originally built as a workhouse in 1848, later it was an infirmary for 'the long term sick' In 1936 it became a psychiatric unit. It closed in 2005 and is now itself in the care of the community - The Community Land Trust to be precise - who are doing wonderful things there. 
There is a marvelous programme of films and events throughout the festival
