25 Oct ENCHANTED CIRCUIT installation by Clare Lynn @ Hockley
After her installation on the Southend beach this June, Clare Lynn comes with another project – Enchanted Circuit – a one-off event in the Hockley Woods which can be viewed on Sunday between 6.30 – 9pm. Here Clare answers few questions for us:
What has led you to do this project?
As you may already know through other installations, I have gained a curiosity with certain locations that we avoid once darkness falls. Environments we would might become fearful of due to the lack of light be it natural or artificial, not only that they become ignored or forgotten lost in the darkness. I began to investigate woodland environments due to my own fear of entering a dark forest. They have an enchanted attachment to them and I want to play on that with this installation.
Is this an experiment for you or for the audience, how important is the audience for you?
It is meant for people to come and see. I want the viewer/audience to come and explore the installation and let their imagination run away with them and gain access to an area they would avoid in a normal situation.
What is the installation made of?
I will be using approximately 800 LEDs this time, along with glass jars and plenty of nylon thread – the rest is a surprise for the viewers. It is one of my most challenging projects to date, with a great deal of planning involved, along with applications to Rochford District Council, who have kindly let me use the woodland.
Directions: Hockley Woods - when you enter the car park (just before the Bull Inn), head for the far side and there will be signs and lights.
