  • Eclipse – Greenman Comission 2017

    Venue: Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons Dates: 17-20th August 2017 For Green Man Festival 2017, Lumen were commissioned to create a new work, Eclipse, which re-imagined the total solar eclipse occurring around the time of Green Man but only visible in the United States, providing a collective viewing experience under the pine trees. Over the course of the festival, the total solar eclipse installation was a site for reflection on myths and legends surrounding the total eclipse. From the Pomo's who believed that a bear took a bite out of the Sun, to the Tewa tribe who believed that the angry Sun went underworld in a fit of anger, to inuits who believed that the Sun and Moon were chasing each other as part of an argument.
