Evoke Minster

Any York-based types go to this or know anything about it?

"A specially commissioned project for Illuminating York 2007 in northern England, Evoke is a massive animated projection that lights up the facade of York Minster in response to the public, who use their own voices to "evoke" colourful light patterns that emerge at the building's foundations and soar up towards the sky, giving the surface a magical feeling as it melts with colour."

It was in Oct/Nov last year, apparently - any mention in the Yorkshire Evening Press (or were they too busy complaining about the Ring Road, dog mess and empty shops in Stonegate)?

More pics here (thanks, Rowan)


  1. yep, I wanted to go and look at the minster all lit up, but it was never convenient. I saw a photo of it on the bbc news site and it looked rather good.

  2. I spent a couple of evenings drunkenly shouting at the Minster before Christmas. It was rather good.... And this one time there was a light show... I thank you very much, I'm here all week.

    Seriously, it was rather odd, particularly later at night when it was generally quiet and you weren't expecting these things to shoot up the side of the Minster at the slightest sound.
