Honeysuckle Lights

The Honeysuckle Lights–Railway Workshop Projection utilised digital projection technology to explore novel forms of public engagement. Using a range of illumination and projection techniques, this activation strategy promoted Honeysuckle to a larger demographic after-hours; increasing both safety and the night-time economy for various user groups of the area. Aligning with the City of Newcastle’s agenda for Creative Cities, this new type of public art re-imagines the existing city, forming new connections between the built environment and the arts. Affiliated with the School of Architecture and Built Environment (SABE) and the School of Creative Industries (SOCI), the project contributed and enhanced the knowledge and skill of those who are the current and future content creators (built and creative) within the City of Newcastle. This project aimed to develop further areas of research in the activation and improvement of public amenity; to renew use and appeal of an existing site and establish a connection between the public and place.
