Ginkgo cellular light projection

By Joseph Reeves

On the chimney

A light projection onto the chimney, by Joseph Reeves, best viewed in the shorter days of winter (November-February).

The texture of the light projection falling onto the repeating pattern of Victorian brickwork of the chimney mimics the natural repeating patterns of the cell structure of the Ginkgo Biloba tree. The visual artwork inspires us to delve deeper into the detail of nature and the wonder of all living things on our planet.

The Ginkgo Biloba tree and the chimney stand shoulder to shoulder in The Hidden Gardens; testament to their respective natural and post-industrial pasts.

Ginkgo is the most ancient tree species on Earth; and our very own Ginkgo is planted in the lawn.
