After Dark (2000)
An interactive audio-visual installation for the Crescent, Buxton. Each night during the Buxton Festival passers-by would trigger the appearance of shadowy figures in the windows of the Crescent accompanied by eerie sounds from within the building.
The figures, sourced from old photographs and illustrations of the Crescent, brought a transitory sense of occupancy and life back to the deserted building.
After Dark was a self-initiated project funded by the Buxton Festival Fringe, with support from the Old Hall Hotel and Derbyshire County Council.
Thanks to John Wilson for his help in sourcing funding, obtaining permissions and installing the work.
