60 silver reflective kites flown at sunset on the riverbank
‘Preliminary Attempts to Rearrange a Sunset’ is a shifting installation in the sky. Everyone is invited to launch a fleet of reflective silver kites between 5pm and 8pm to create a live collage of the sunset as it happens.
On the ground, the kites act as choreographers for the movements of participants, and in the sky, they will be containers of an ever-shifting scene. Specifically, this event takes places in a spot on the river path frequented by painter JMW Turner, as he claimed it was one of the only places where one could see the sun rise over the Thames and set back into it.
Bourne Wharf finally finished.
