St Mary Le Strand: Rebecca Smith Installation



GLOW: ILLUMINATING INNOVATION is a multi-sited London exhibition showcasing groundbreaking artworks by leading women artists working with cutting-edge technologies. Brand-new pieces have been curated alongside historical works spanning five decades revealing the previously hidden innovation by women in technology.



Situated inside the St Mary le Strand church and drawing directly from the live environmental data generated by the many sensors that surround the Strand Aldwych space, colours, movement, speed, and sound will all be informed from large swaths of live data exchange.



By taking information that is invisible to the human eye and presenting it in a way that seamlessly overlays with the public realm, the audience are invited to explore a dynamic perception of space, and to critically engage with issues of climate change and the environment.



This light and sound installation will be in place inside the church for three days – from the 11 – 13 March and will be open to the public from 10am – 10pm. During this time invigilators are required to check in visitors and gather evaluation data.
