Triangle lights up arts festival

Triangle main contractor Bouygues UK is set to light up Cambridge in the coming week as the headline sponsor for the e-Luminate Festival, which will include a stunning moving light projection from the Triangle building.

The contemporary arts festival, which launches in the market square on Friday 10 February and continues until 15 February, aims to show the richness and diversity of the city’s iconic buildings and public spaces in a new light. The 2017 Festival has the theme of ‘Play of Light’ and will take place in venues across the city. The yet to be revealed Triangle art will be a construction related moving projection coming from inside the building, but visible outside,  created by leading projection artist Ross Ashton. His previous projects have included the 800th anniversary of the University of Cambridge, the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

As part of the public art engagement the Group is also a sponsor of the festival, with three of the art mentees producing work that will be on display at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge throughout the festival. This includes Abi Spendlove’s infrared video footage of the walk from 1 Hills Road to Triangle, Eleanor Osmond’s use of exam paper instructions to create “impossible instructions and uncertain fragments” on a scrolling LED display and Henry Driver’s projection of audience members onto a screen.
