Light Lines, Hull

‘Light Lines’ is an installation project created as part of the public arts programme for the newly built NHS Wilberforce Health Centre, a £16.5 million walk-in centre in Hull that opened in 2012. ‘Light Lines’ consists of a series of strip lights set into the fenestration that forms part of the building’s main elevation that respond to and represent fluctuating environmental conditions. Four different colours of strip light are used to chart the changing temperature using 15 different colour combinations in response to a control system that receives a flow of data that is reviewed and updated 96 times a day.
