Abstract

Northam Shoal is a major public light work, a landmark beacon for an area of urban regeneration. Set 12 meters above the ground the sculpture uses a modified decomisioned lighting column. The result of research with scientists at Southampton's National Oceanographic Study Centre. Near to a thousand 'heat-blued' stainless steel fish form a shoal super-organism. Lit by sequenced fibre-optics the turbulent mass appears to spiral like a vortex
