Limelight – illuminating the industrial landscape of lime

Charles Danby and Rob Smith
Managed by Rebecca Spooner

Artists Charles Danby and Rob Smith will create live illuminations
connecting the historic lime industry of the Black Mountains with the Welsh capital. Limelight, most notably used in the 19th century for land survey work and stage lighting, provides an intense white light generated from heating quicklime. The landscape illuminations will be made at nightfall and live streamed to audiences at Cardiff Contemporary. A visual record of this
event will be installed for the duration of the festival.

Supported by Peak/Copa contemporary art in the Black Mountains.
