Callum Innes light commission at Edinburgh Art Festival

Edinburgh-based painter Callum Innes (b.1962) has been commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and the nearby Ingleby Gallery to produce The Regent Bridge, a new temporary work at the 19th century Regent Bridge in the city.

The work will involve flooding the underside of the bridge at Calton Road (under Waterloo Place) with coloured light. Callum has worked with architect and lighting artist Gavin Fraser, of FOTO-MA Lighting Architects, to devise a scheme that transforms the flat sides of the lower arch at street level into an illuminated plinth of floating colour. The work follows a series of set rules to create a structured and yet deliberately random order of coloured light, revealing and lifting the giant curve of the arch above. 

The work will be visible 24 hours between 4 August – 2 September 2012.
