Tynemouth Station Pedestrian Bridge
Waste stream float glass; kiln-formed feet; interactive sound and light; Resin bonded bus stop shattered glass
Asking the traveller where they are from? where they are going?
More than 1400 pieces of glass creating a 28 metre-long glass carpet. Interactive sound and light is triggered by sensors at the ends of the bridge, and leads the traveller to the other side.
The bridge installation was developed throughout a four-week ‘open studio’ at The Globe Gallery (INTER-ACT), during which local people were invited to contribute themselves, and see how it was being created. Metro-morphosis received 12,000 visitors per week.
