Water Wings
Water Wings
Water Wings by Bruce Williams is an installation on The Great Promenade Show.

Designed to be viewed in motion from the adjacent tram track and road, the photographic image of a swimming child laser cut into an 8m long curved stainless steel screen gradually resolves and disappears again as the viewer moves past.

Looking across at it from the other side of New South Promenade a passing pedestrian is silhouetted by the artwork.
The Great Promenade Show
A complete reconstruction of Blackpool's South Promenade incorporated a major series of new public art works commissioned by Blackpool Borough Council, and described by them as "an outdoor gallery of contemporary art". Since 2001, ten large-scale permanent works have been installed at special viewing points along the well-designed new 2km walkway. Additional information can be found at LinkExternal link
