About the event

Murmurations: Shared Space & Light image

This year the work is accompanied by a newly composed soundtrack by Owen Crouch.

Created by Brighton-based collective Shared Space and Light (Giles Thacker, Kate Laird and Chris Grottick), Murmurations reminds us of the wonder and beauty in our immediate environment.

Giles Thacker has been filming starling murmurations for over 10 years. “Like many others, I've been mesmerised by the flocking patterns of the starlings. And I love the fact that we have these awe-inspiring displays right in the heart of our urban environments - the murmurations briefly reconnect us to the natural world and are a powerful reminder of the sheer beauty and wonder of our natural heritage.”

The projection will be visible from the outside of the building on Ship Street, from 21 December to 16 January between 5pm and dawn. The soundtrack will be broadcast between 5pm and 8pm each day.
