Sean Griffiths

Sean has created an interactive public artwork, based around the lantern folly at Lyme Park. The lantern is approximately half a mile away from the top lawn which sits adjacent to the house. The top lawn is the only place on the publicly accessible part of the estate from which the lantern is visible.

The aim of the artwork is to interpret and enhance the existing relationship between the lawn and the lantern by allowing visitors to interfere with and change this relationship.
