Today is the official launch of the permanent version of my installation at Armagh. Five and a half years after my initial visit to the observatory in September 2009, the installation has been finally realised in its permanent form, and yet the journey is not over….
For the last week or so we have been touring aroundNorth around Northern Ireland, and after today there’s still a couple of performances to go. (See post below.)
I’m glad to say that the piece has been well received by all who have attended the various events. Those with little astronomical knowledge have found the experience fascinating whilst those more learned in astronomy have expressed excitement about the work’s potential. More importantly perhaps, comments about the piece’s musicality have also been positive, referring to the work as “reflective”, “grounding”, and even “healing”.
