“strength” “love” “travel” “positivity” “life” “unity” “friends”

These are just some of the words that you said came to mind when you think of the future, or what you hoped the future might hold.

Using words gathered from a call out to Macclesfield’s communities, Lucy – a Macclesfield-based artist – has created a work that reflects our hopes for the future, inspiring reflection and positivity.  Imagine that moment when you pull your Christmas fairy lights out of the box only to find they’ve become a tangled mess, and the joy they bring when they’re finally up and twinkling on the tree.

Lucy is a light artist and a critically acclaimed, award-winning, lighting designer. A long and successful career in live performance and events has included working with, and for, many of the best dance, ballet, opera and theatre companies in the world, including The National Theatre and The Royal Ballet in London, The MET Opera in New York and La Scala, Milan. Current credits include lighting design for Everybodys Talking About Jamie at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue.

Her lighting installations and light artworks embody a sense of both theatricality and unfolding kinetic narratives.
