Colourscapes are walk-in structures of colour and light, originally created by artist Peter Jones in the early 70s. Over 35 have been made, in many different sizes and shapes offering different experiences.
In 1994 Eye Music Trust commissioned the largest ever Colourscape (Festival One) with funds from the National Lottery and Foundation for Sport and the Arts. Subsequently Eye Music Trust commissioned two further Colourscapes – Festival Two and Moonorooni. All three are presented by Eye Music throughout the UK and abroad for events and workshops linking music and colour.
Cwmni Colourscape, the partnership of artists Peter Jones and Lynne Dickens, have three Colourscapes, Mirror Islands, Wings and Sky Holes, and continue to develop new work.
Each of the Colourscapes have different qualities and functions –
- Festival One and Two for presentations of larger-scale performances, events and workshops
- Moonorooni for workshops and performances on smaller sites
- Mirror Islands and Wings for experiences of pure colour and light
- Sky Holes for colour and art workshops.
Smaller structures with aspects of colour and light include ColourDome and the Tube.
