'Flash @ Hebburn', Hebburn Riverside Park
'Flash @ Hebburn' is a piece of public art by Charles Quick, installed at Hebburn Riverside Park on 7 March 2009. The £150,000 project involves 12 columns in a 3 x 4 grid, each 8.5 metre high, bearing LED lights each powered by a solar panel NZ3064 : Flash at Hebburn (Public Art ). Revolutionary radio technology is used to control sequences of blue and white flashes designed to echo the area’s industrial past. The columns are not inter-connected by cables.
At dusk the installation plays 15 minute flash sequences of two from eight patterns LinkExternal link
During daylight hours, a 30 second sequence is used every 15 minutes. The photograph shows the third set of lights down slope glowing blue during one of these sequences.
