LIGHTPLAY is a contemporary public artwork for Torquay’s Royal Terrace Gardens, a popular tourist attraction frequented by locals and visitors. Lightplay is a permanent, lit and interactive route along the seafront that encourages visitors to enjoy the gardens and take inspiration from the historical and natural influences woven into the artwork. Lightplay extends the notion of sunset and conveys a sense of health, happiness and enjoyment that comes with the warmth of evening light.
Lightplay was commissioned by Torbay Council and conceived and curated by Ginko Projects , leading a multidisciplinary team consisting of award-winning lighting design practice Michael Grubb Studio, visual artist Anouk Mercier and lighting installer Drew & Co. to bring Lightplay to life.*
