As part of Altered Festival 2015, Dan Fox presents his installation Filharmonic in the historic church of St. Andrews

About

Sound artist Dan Fox presents Filharmonic (2014) in the historic church of St. Andrew's in Burton Pedwardine. The work comprises three carbon filmament lightbulbs, and sounds which echo from three carefully positioned hemisperical domes which bounce the sound off the floor and walls. The work was commissioned by the National Trust as part of LUX - a contemporary art festival at Cragside House, Northumberland, and is inspired by the visonary engineer and former Cragside owner Sir William Armstrong and physicist Joseph Swann.

The installation is part of Altered Festival 2015, which brings internationally renowned artists to historic churches across Lincolnshire. The Festival marks the conclusion of Altered: Contemporary Art in Ancient Churches – a pioneering initiative masterminded by partners the University of Lincoln, the Diocese of Lincoln and artsNK – which has for years challenged audiences to view historic church buildings in innovative ways through new artworks.
