Illuminating York

This past weekend, York played host to projection artist Ross Ashton in collaboration with sound artist Karen Monid, for a piece entitled Rose.

They took images inspired by the rose window of the South transept of York minster and projected it on to the South transept’s facade.

Depicted here is the White Rose of York, which eventually becomes one half of the Tudor Rose.

Also used were images of illuminated manuscripts, tying in the themes of Illumination.

The scale and beauty were impressive.

Unfortunately the next clip I took is sideways, however you can hear the sound.

One of my favorite  images is of St. William of York, as I am presenting on the use of his image in York Minster next week.

In all it was a wonderful evening and I cannot wait until next years’ event.
