FLICKERING LIGHTS

 

Rows of still and flickering votive lights fill the chapel space, with texts from the historic Chapter Acts books. They describe the lives of mediaeval occupants and are etched into the paving flags which are illuminated by reflected light from low level walls and a field of fibre optics arranged to form a grid pattern. The soft lights flicker on the floor of the chapel space.
