PICTURE OF THE WEEK 13th March 2020
“A picture is worth a thousand words”.
I love pictures and I love words. I “see” what they mean about pictures though, but as a writer I find a picture inspires a thousand plus some, too. And a word inspires 1,000 pictures.
Take a look at the picture and consider what 1,000 words it inspires in you?
The photograph I am featuring this week is magnificently rich in colour. But what is it a photograph of?
It is a light-and-sound art installation, Sarum Lights, has been installed in Salisbury Cathedral as part of its 800th anniversary celebrations.
Salisbury Cathedral has been lit up inside and out with projections and light installations as part of its 800th anniversary celebrations.
The Wiltshire cathedral was moved 3km (two miles) from Old Sarum to Salisbury in 1220 – making it the only English cathedral to move location.
The cathedral’s move to Salisbury acted as a catalyst for the city to develop.
The Very Reverend Nicholas Papadopulos said it was a “suitably dramatic start to a landmark year for the city”.
Commissioned by the cathedral and produced by Luxmuralis, Sarum Lights includes projections on the cathedral’s towering west front celebrating the building’s history.
Inside the cathedral an immersive light and sound installation explores the people who shaped the city.
Dean of Salisbury, the Very Reverend Papadopulos, said Sarum Lights “testifies to the faith and endeavour of the cathedral’s builders”.
