Star Ceiling - Jo Fairfax (2004)

Star Ceiling
Star Ceiling - Jo Fairfax

This lightwork is installed in the lift area of the car park behind The Sage Gateshead. Star Ceiling can be glimpsed through a 60 cm glass lens in the floor.  

The artwork represents the night’s sky and consists of a collection of fibre optic cables housed within clear tubing. 116 tails of changing coloured light can be seen when looking up from the ground floor, animating this area. Hung in a grid format, the fibre optics are pre-programmed to change colour, resulting in a flow of sparkling light and visual performance.  

Funded by One North East through the Single Regeneration Budget.
