Hopes and Fears - November 2016

The Pitt Rivers and the Museum of Natural History worked in collaboration with Luxmuralis and Fusion Arts to create this one-off light and sound installation. Luxmuralis took images and sounds from the museums’ collections and turned them into a dramatic and breathtaking event that lit up the entire facade of the museum.

Created by Lumxuralis, artistic collaboration of Artist and Sculptor Peter Walker and Composer David Harper luxmuralis.com
