Durham Lumiere Sanctuary
This exhibit by Sarah Blood was in the grounds of St Oswald’s Church on South Road, down from the University, heading back into the city centre.
The birdhouses were accompanied by humans imitating birdsong. This was truly magical, as some of the mimicry was indeterminable from real birdsong. The atmosphere of the church yard gave a sense of peace, as this is night-time, and hearing birdsong at night was rather calming. Imagine if you are alone in a grave yard at night and hear birdsong…!
I was approached by Sarah who inquired about how I was achieving the exposures of the birdhouses. I explained to her what I was trying to do, and she asked if was able to send her some pictures of what I have done. I have sent her about three, as emailing them can be a trifle hard to do.
