'Lightspace'

Like many who have experienced the Royal Exchange, it is impossible not to stop, look up and around you. It doesnít matter if this is your first or your hundred-and-first encounter with the space, this is what you do. With hindsight, this observation of a common human reaction was the origin of this exhibition.

The reciprocal spatial relationship between the two physical structures, one cushioned inside the other was always going to be a constant theme of the project, but it quickly evolved and extended to include the imagined landscapes created each month within the theatre itself. Although itís an oversimplification to say this, I think this is where the project gained its own singularity and rather than be about two physical structures, it also became about the light and how it binds the forms together in each single image
