‘Luminarium’ – Architects of Air – by Alan Parkinson

West Park Stray | Harrogate

The Stray transforms into a magical world of sensory bliss. Enter the luminarium and be amazed!

Visitors remove their shoes before entering an airlock. Once inside you are free to follow a map and explore the installation. Or, simply find a cocooning pod, sit and lie back and enjoy the ambience, enhanced by the subtle sounds of immersive soundscape.

The first reaction is often one of delight at the unexpected beauty of the light. The radiance of the daylight transmitted by the coloured pvc of the luminarium is surprising in its luminosity and makes a direct impact on the senses.

Through labyrinthine tunnels and cavernous domes, visitors move in a medium of saturated and subtle hues. Vivid reflections of liquid colour spill across the curved walls creating a world apart from the normal and everyday. No two visits to a structure are alike as the atmosphere inside alters according to changing weather and changing light outside.

Visit ‘Luminarium’ by Architects of Air and be moved to a sense of wonder!
