LUMINATIONS

Luminations is an extendable sculptural art system derived directly from Rolinson's Gravitate Drawing Series. Luminations is an eloquent animated light artwork that will lead people along the Cleethorpes North Promenade. Formed of two lines of light that boldly loop and curve around lampposts, it captures those heart soaring moments on the big dipper when gravity loses it’s grip.

In Luminations Rolinson has taken the traditional language of seaside illuminations to new heights. Festoon lights are shaped into three-dimensional forms and animated with sophisticated programming. Light movements will chase through the festoons like sprites of wind scudding over sand; bursting out in squally crescendos that fade like fireworks drifting to the ground.

'Luminations is a very exciting project created especially for Cleethorpes North Promenade. In this artwork I am taking the flowing lines developed in my meditative drawing practice onto a really large scale for the first time. To construct this installation I will use a precise system of curving shapes combined together in many different ways to create an enormous variety of looping forms. It is an artwork that can continue to be extended like a mathematical pattern. When it is all up and running we are going to use topnotch programming to produce dynamic light movements that chase and burst into life along the promenade.’
