Array, Public Art Commission at North Gate Bus Station, Northampton, UK
The piece consist of an array of single words and fragments of sentences that are informed by place names and events associated with the history of North Gate Bus Station’s site and bus destinations. These are suspended hovering overhead and transformed by the sun casting their shadows onto the building’s solid surfaces in ever-changing locations dependent on the time of the day and year.
Text on plaque:
Array is inspired by the idea that our movements and actions leave traces in our ever evolving history, creating imprints that come in to and move out of focus in countless combinations.
