Aether & Hemera’s sound and light installation to commemorate the “faith, humanity and resilience” of the people of County Durham is being unveiled to mark the centenary of the armistice.

HOPE is composed by singularly addressable LED light tubes and speakers, to reveal dynamic lights and sounds patterns.

The self-standing three-dimensional geometric shapes will cast complex luminous forms in the immediate surroundings while different voices will evoke the stories of local people during the war, creating an immersive emotional landscape.

The artwork will encourage close encounters: people moving around the installation will be able to listen and perceive First World War memories.

HOPE installation will uncover emotional perceptions, embodying them in a different medium, to engage with the viewers and induce feelings of connective human experiences.

The new sculpture will be in Millennium Place from Friday, November 9 to Thursday, November 15, for all to experience.
