Artist Lindsay Perth has created a stunning interactive glass lighting installation.

Hand blown glass shapes created by members of the community, NHS staff and Lindsay suspend from the ceiling.

Each of the 52 pieces is unique in its colour and shape as chosen by its maker, personally blown and formed in workshops in the glass department of Edinburgh College Art.

When all these highly individual pieces come together they form this ‘community’ of remarkable glass lights.

Glass makers have engraved their signatures on their pieces, underlining the artworks sense of local identity.
