Mirrie Light Winter Illuminations
Winter 2009-10

This project, conceived by artists Nayan Kulkarni and Roxane Permar, was commissioned by Shetland Arts over the winter of 2009-10. It offered an opportunity for people to help create dynamic light works for ten temporary illuminations in Voe, Haroldswick, Yell, North Roe, Tingwall, Reawick, Bressay, Nesbister, Dunrossness and Snarravoe, Unst. Later all of these works will become part of the exterior illuminations for Mareel, Shetland's new music, cinema and education venue. Much more information about the project is available on the Mirrie Dancers website.

Austin Taylor Photography was appointed Illuminations Photographer for the project and this page is the gallery index for all the individual sites, which shows a selection of each artwork.  The project is now drawing to a close, with the final illumination at the Auld Chapel at Longfield, Dunrossness running until about 23 March 2010.

We should like to express our thanks to the artists Nayan Kulkarni and Roxane Permar for all their help and to Shetland Arts for commissioning us to be a part of this fantastic project and create an amazing portfolio of images.

'Mirrie Dancers' is the Shetland term for the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis.
