All lit up
A couple of years ago (November 2008 to be precise) artist Martin Firrell was given the chance by St Paul’s Cathedral to project a series of words and phrases onto its famous dome for a project called ‘The Question Mark Inside’. Having survived Nazi bombers and zillions of sloppy pigeons one of London’s most recognisable landmarks was to be bathed at night in blue and white. The project seeked to answer the question, ‘What are the things that make modern life meaningful and what does St Paul mean in that context?’ The answers were submitted by people from all walks of life in English, Sanskrit, Arabic, Portuguese and French, among others. Standing on the roof of Tate Modern from across the Thames I was able to take come remarkable photos. This is only one of my favourites.
