Developed by outdoor art experts Walk the Plank, Green Space Dark Skies is part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK running April to September 2022.

Carrying a low impact Geolight designed by Siemens onto the Giant’s Ring, Lumenators helped to create a large-scale artwork, celebrate nature and everyone’s right to explore the countryside.

Also in attendance was a mass choir premiering a new piece of music written by Katie Richardson. There was no live audience and the location was kept secret to protect the landscape.
