Materials and Size: 
High-Pressure Sodium Lighting, 8m x 80m
Commissioner:

‘Continuous Flow’ is a light installation created in response to the direction and movement of people walking from one end of Swinegate Under Bridge to another and criss-crossing in the middle. This is created by the direction of the light beams flashed upon the wall. 

The work is also designed to produce a flow of light to follow people as they walk under the bridge. There are 20 high-pressure sodium lights in groups of four. The lights are programmed to intensify from 35% to 100% slowly.

When one group of lights gets near to its full power the next group is trigged and this creates a continuous flow of light 24hrs a day. The warm and intense colours used by the artist attract people into that area, enabling them to walk through and experience an aura of light and colour.
