‘Flint’ by toyStudio, located at Norwich Arts Centre, is the first art installation to be revealed on the new (March 2023) free Norfolk Way Art Trail.
An outdoor creative light installation, Flint is a collection of mirrored totems – set in the church grounds of the Arts Centre – which reflect the flintstones that make up the walls of the Church of St Swithin, as well as referencing the stone’s importance as part of Norfolk’s landscape. Created in partnership with local community groups, the totems feature stained glass designs, inspired by Norwich’s beautiful historical buildings, medieval streets, and rich culture.
Visit during daylight and twilight hours, to appreciate all the aspects of the artwork. By day, light catches the mirrors and then, as the sun sets, colours from the pixel sticks within the totems magnify each totem’s design, to form a mesmerising, shifting light sequence.
The installation is illuminated from sunset to 1am daily. It’s the first installation to be revealed on the new Norfolk Way Art Trail: an exciting new art trail spanning 250 miles across Norfolk. This county-wide Trail features multi-sensory, accessible public artworks to engage local communities, reveal hidden stories, and inspire visitors to explore Norfolk.
