An interactive artwork and outdoor installation which will change and grow over the course of Brighton Festival.

100 miles of string will be handed out to audiences who can weave, wind and criss-cross the installation, creating complex patterns and dense webs, transforming the space into an exciting, playful environment.

100 Miles of String will include large structures to weave in and out of and devices for looking and photographing the changing environment.

This is an event for people of all ages to play, explore and work together to create a temporary landmark for the city.

Leap Then Look is a collaboration between artists Lucy Cran and Bill Leslie who create engaging, richly interactive experiences, encouraging people to work together, inspiring playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation.
