10-12. Durham Bridges
Martin Warden (UK)
Durham's bridges are so much a part of the city's fabric that it can be easy for the daily passer-by not to notice them. Lumiere lighting designer Martin Warden will light three of Durham's bridges, enhancing their stunning architecture and putting them in the spotlight for residents and visitors alike. These installations will celebrate lighting technology, some mimicing the lighting seen elsewhere in the festival and others showcasing solar power and the latest low-energy technologies.
