About this project

Beneath the bows of this ancient Yew tree, a dynamic prismatic form brings new light to this shady, secret space. Encircled by trees, dappled light filtering through the leaves produces an amazing spectrum of colours and reflections that transform our experience of this area of Cheeseburn Sculpture Park, Northumberland.
