Deptford High Street Railway Art Bridge Lighting Consultation

An exciting light art installation is set to be on Deptford High Street railway bridge by Deptford Station. Three proposals by artist Peter Freeman are to be consulted upon. All three look great. I think I have my personal favourite, but whatever the outcome I’m sure it will look fantastic. 

The purpose of this consultation is to introduce the artist’s approach and initial design proposals to the Deptford High Street Railway Art Bridge Lighting. Lewisham Council would like feedback and comments to help inform how the designs develop on to the next stage of planning application and finally realisation.
The Proposal can be found here (please see document titled: “Deptford Bridge Lighting Information” in Supporting Documents tab on previous page).

Artist Peter Freeman, a former Goldsmiths University student, has made three initial design proposals for an art lighting installation at Deptford High Street railway bridge. Each of the proposals use a different arrangement of colour changing LED lights and different individual colour changing programs.

Proposal 1 – Rainbow Bridge .

Rainbow Bridge uses light to create an overhead rainbow of colours.

Proposal 2 – Birthday Bridge.

Birthday Bridge uses light and colour to celebrate the birthdays of local residents creating dynamic murals of colour.

Proposal 3 – The light Loves You Deptford

The Light Loves You Deptford uses light and colour to celebrate Deptford’s culture and connections to the wider world with a necklace of light.
Lewisham Council would like to ask your opinion about the three initial design proposals.
The final lighting design will be developed from the preferences shown by the questionnaire below, combined with advice from Network Rail and from a site test to test which of the lighting design works best with the structure and space of the bridge.

The choice for how the lights are programmed to change colour will be decided by the responses we get from the questionnaire on the next page.

Please read the document titled: “Deptford Bridge Lighting Information” in the Supporting Documents tab on previous page before completing the questionnaire.
