Abstract

New Audiovisual Installation responding to the Hastings
Embroidery, made in 1966 by stitchers of the Royal
School of Needlework.

Open to the public May - October 2019

Commissioned and Produced by Bridgepoint Rye
Concept, visuals Tim Hopkins
Music and sounds composed by Robert Thomas
Production sound design Danny Bright
Light design Nicholas Holdridge

This project sits at a crossroads of coincidences: the
coming to light of this work marking a version of Britain’s
past, a chance to show it again in a big space, and the
immediate upheaval around Britain’s future.
This large scale installation around the 240
foot Hastings Embroidery imagined the energy of this as
it rushes past us on its way to being something else.
