Glamrocks - Blackpool - Glamrocks are based on sea smoothed beach pebbles modelled in a 3D-computer program. Each pebble form is made from white concrete studded with 150 fibre-optic light points that change colour and sparkle, creating glittering coloured surfaces. There are three Glamrocks the largest is 2 metres long and 1.3 metres high. I love the energy of Blackpool and its illuminations so it was a fantastic honour to be invited to create a permanent light sculpture for the South Shore Promenade. Glamrock was commissioned by Blackpool Borough Council 2002 with RDA funding and project managed by the Art Department.
