star ceiling

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

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 in 2004.
