Edinburgh - do - Callum Innes - The Regent Bridge

Callum Innes - The Regent Bridge

This spooky bridge is enlivened with a colorful light installation.

Regent bridge was built in 1819 solving the long-standing problem of entering the city through cobbly, narrow, inconvenient medieval streets. Now still a major thoroughfare between the Old and New Towns but centuries of dirt and a lack of light has made this bridge more like a dark, slightly sinister tunnel than a celebratory arch..

Edinburgh artist Callum Innes and lighting artist Gavin Frasera have collaborated to make a simple intervention which floods this dark tunnel on Calton Road with bright colour to reveal both the magnificent architecture of the Regent Bridge above and the giant curve of the tunnel's arch....

The light changes and will so create a different experience every time but nights are best as the eerie lighting and static shadows almost complement this lurking tunnel and its dirty, dripping walls..
