Luminary is a series of beautiful LED light-drawings at locations across the city by respected British artist Ron Haselden. They range in scale from the monumental, presented as a walk-through installation at Fabrica, to the intimate, shining out from homes in several of the city’s neighbourhoods.

Sketches by young children and older people have provided the inspiration for Luminary, stemming from Haselden’s love of drawings produced by the ‘untutored hand’. In scaling up these drawings with LED ropelight, Luminary amplifies their spontaneous, uninhibited style, offering the singularity of the artist’s vision while shedding a genuine light on the perspectives of others.
