Internationally-recognized artist Bruce Munro, best known for immersive large-scale light installations, returns to Salisbury Cathedral in time for Christmas with a special new installation to debut on 14 November 2014 through to 4 February 2015.

Star of Bethlehem will be projected onto the Cathedral’s famous ‘living water’ font, its light reflecting on the water surface and spilling over onto the ancient stone floor.  This animation of radiating lines of light is projected onto the still water of the font – it grows to its fullest extent in 2 minutes 20 seconds and remains at its full extent for 70 minutes, while the biblical text scrolls along each point of the star. It is best viewed after 4.00pm when the light outside is fading.
