Light installation illuminates Cathedral Gardens

Last night Birmingham Cathedral gardens was the site for our latest pop-up installation by Aowen Jin a renowned British-Chinese artist who works on critically-acclaimed public commissions that challenge cultural perceptions and social inclusivity.

Called ‘Midlight’ it features thousands of LED lights with 90,000 colour variations which adjust so that no two experiences with the artwork are ever the same. The project is the first of its kind to include the participation of Birmingham’s local Chinese community who live and work around the Hippodrome in the Southside district.

If you missed last night’s event Midlight can be seen again for free at Millennium Point on Friday 18 December from 1pm – 5.30pm.  

Visitors are encouraged to tweet the name of any colour to @himidlight and the installation will change colour.

Here’s some great images from last night.
