Ephemeral Rays: Hundreds of Suspended Light Bulbs in a UK Dockyard multiples light installation

Charlotte Smith is a contemporary artist, who hosted her work at the Chatham Historic Dockyard. Her installation was entitled Ephemeral Rays, consisting of several hundred lights on filaments filling the front of a galvanizing shop’s window. “Originally installed at Chatham Historic Dockyard, Ephemeral Rays depicted the volume of a fleeting ray of light beaming through a window of the Galvanising Shop. Reinstalled at Turner Contemporary the work evolved into a new form; drawing on the stunning expanse of sea and sky, the infinite horizon line was the focal point of the composition”, is her own description of the installation.
