Flash @ Hebburn by Charles Quick
This installation at Hebburn Riverside Park is at the cutting edge of new technologies in public art and reflects the long history of Hebburn being a place of innovation.
The artwork takes the form of 12 x 8.5 metre columns powered by photovoltaic panels. Revolutionary radio technology is used to control a number of light sequences of blue and white LED lights that replicate industrial flashes of light to echo the area's past.
The piece activates for a 30 second sequence every 15 minutes throughout the day and one of eight different fifteen-minute sequences come on automatically at dusk each night.
Once a year a special midnight sequence celebrates New Year's Eve to reflect the ships sirens and flares that once populated the river.
Visible from as far away as Newcastle, Gateshead and Wallsend the artwork gives Hebburn a distinct identity from other riverside communities along the Tyne.
