An amazing UK debut is among the attractions in store for visitors to this year’s Light Night Leeds. Having its UK premiere is ‘Heofon’, an immersive light maze taking center stage in Granary Wharf as part of the annual event which illuminates the city.
Heofon is a 2m high maze based on triangular geometry made from panels of acrylic glass. The panels reflect or shift the light rays along the entire colour range of a rainbow while spectators move inside the installation.
On the outer perimeter, the panels are covered with a mirror film converting the interior in an infinity room – a unique cosmos of overlapping light patterns and constantly changing colours. A dichroic film on one side of the acrylic glass converts the panels into semi-transparent and reflects the light rays along the entire colour range of the rainbow whilst the spectator moves through the installation.
Heofon from the Old English Dictionary, meaning ‘the sky, the firmament, the heavens’.
