blue was commissioned by Guildford Borough Council to transform this
previously forbidding area into a safe and inviting river walkway. The pillars
and the roof glow with beautiful shades of blue and magenta forming an arch
of light over the river. The reflected images in the dark water are stunning
and ripples made by passing boats disturb the surface of the water creating
complex reflections. rhythm blue is created using floodlights fitted with
various coloured dichroic filters. These are mounted to the base of each
bridge pillar on both sides of the river projecting light onto the pillars
and underneath of the bridge. The reflections in the water turn the dark
and menacing river into a visual spectacle of shimmering coloured light.
rhythm blue is installed on the River Wey in the centre of Guildford next
to the Electric Theatre.
