ARTIST NAME: Lucid Creates

BEAM is a 30metre long, 9metre high LED light installation suspended from a steel frame. BEAM was commissioned forRiver of Light, Liverpool 2022. To enter BEAM is to wander into a hot summer’s day. Our environment is altered, drenching us in colour and sound. There is a stillness. We are surrounded by the bucolic sounds of summer in the British countryside. A low hum of the micro activity of insects & plants overlaid by sweeping joyful strings. The Sun beams down onto us. The air is clear. For a while, everything is in peaceful balance. We feel joy. A deep, warm, joyful hum encompasses us.Slowly, incrementally over several minutes, heat, light & sound intensify and take on a subtle undercurrent of unease and suspense. The air becomes hazy, tension builds. Colours and sound become more dramatic and intense to a peak, until, suddenly a tipping point is reached and all is still once more.
