The Rising Sun (2022)
The Rising Sun envelopes spectators in haze, light, and sound which evolves as time passes. Built in partnership with local people and communities, the project celebrates the voices of 100 people in Havering, mapping their histories and futures.
The installation was designed to resemble a public house on the outside, whilst the inside offers an environment filled with a hue that follows the movements of the sun. – a space of contemplation and hope.
