Public Realm Commission at Castle Mill Works

Venue: Castle Mill Works (Former North British Rubber company HQ), Gilmore Park, Fountainbridge
As the new moon eclipses the morning sun at 9.45am on 20 March 2015, Northern Europe will be cast into darkness.
In conjunction with this spectacular celestial event, artist David Faithfull and Dr Hermine Schnetler from the UK Astronomy Technology Centre, have been commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers to present ECLIPSE at Castle Mill Works. A dramatic visual artwork, that mirrors and responds to the phases of this solar/lunar extravaganza.
This commission is part of DARK MATTERS developed by Edinburgh Printmakers, the UK ATC, and Edinburgh University to bring artists, astronomers and space engineers together to explore the subject of deep space.
