Blackpool Illuminations Fluted Pylons by Joanne Berry for the Centenary




Installation of Pylon 1, one of five pylons  to be switched on Wednesday 5th September 2012


FLUTED PYLON SWITCH ON PRINCESS PARADE PROMENADE BLACKPOOL , CENTENARY YEAR ILLUMINATIONS WEDNESDAY 5th SEPTEMBER  6.30 for 7.00pm
JO BERRY has reinterpreted 5 fluted pylons using brightly coloured laser cut perspex discs mounted into fibre glass flutes. Each pylon will hold 5 new flutes, each with themes taken from the 1930s collections. Clever internal lighting will ensure that the details from the laser cut drawings will be projected on the glossy white flutes, to create a stunning series of contemporary lights.
A series of community engagement workshops have accompanied this new work.
