Ronan Coyle – City Solstice

City Solstice Ronan Coyle - surface and surfaceA really nice light installation using a forgotten stain-glass window on Camden Street Upper in Dublin.  Ronan Coyle uses his project to draw people’s attention back to this unnoticed piece of architectural heritage.

“An Event to mark the Winter Solstice in the City with an animated illumination of the beautiful Stained Glass window on 4 Camden Street Upper, the workshop of the famous Early & Co ecclesiastical suppliers. It’s there to help lighten the darkest days a little and provide a chance to admire the craftsmanship of their prestigious stained glass artists.”

Watch the video below to see the whole process and people’s reaction to the piece. You can find out more on the city solstice facebook page here and another project by Ronan here.

  1. How uplifting – unpretentious and nice.

  2. Amazing. Beautiful stained glass brought to life. Phenomenal work with the lighting. I studied the craft of stained glass for 5 years and absolutely love this. May your light shine bright Ronan! Great Work.
