Art and Design student lights up Oxford’s historic Bodleian Library

City of Oxford College student, Imogen Wright, has designed the winning lighting installation for Oxford’s SSL Pockets of light competition.

The competition gave young people the opportunity to design a light show to be projected onto famous buildings around Oxford such as, The Ashmolean Museum, Museum of Natural History, Museum of the History of Science, Bodleian Library, Radcliffe Camera, and Radcliffe Observatory.

The project brief required for the entries from young people in and around Oxford to consider colour, texture and the building’s features within their designs. Imogen’s design, with its striking choices of colour and a marbled effect, was selected to illuminate The North Façade of the Bodleian Library for the Night of Heritage Light 3 and Curiosity Carnival.

Lyn Hall, Fashion Tutor, said: “We are very proud of Imogen’s achievement, the design was stunning and she did incredibly well to stand out among so many fantastic entries. We went along to see the instillation on the night and it was incredible. All of our students were inspired to see Imogen’s work featured in the Night of Heritage Light and to be featured somewhere so historic and famous. The event drew large crowds and was a great success.”
