This picture shows a view of the dark arches underneath the railway station, Leeds. Anyone who has walked along the road towards Granary Wharf or perhaps Bridgewater Place over the last few months will have noticed the odd noises and lighting.
I have just looked through some photographs I took a few weeks back and given this one some thought and looked around the web for some info. Turns out that this is a sound and light installation by Hans Peter Kuhn. There are directional speakers built behind the new aluminium panels along the wall and lights too. I watched the beginnings of the installation of these and it never occured to me that it might be public art. Then when it was nearly finished I realised what it was.
So if you should travel along Neville Street and through the tunnel you will notice this light and sound installation and see it for what it is.
