Five student members of “The Brighton School” have created a new “myth” for London Road in the form of a mysterious stone circle.
The 40 stones have been implanted in the London Road area in various places many of which are visible to curious passers-by.
The stones were orginally unused stone slabs adjacent to St Peter’s church, near the taxi rank. They were about to be thrown away – but have now been reused for this new idea.
Where stones have been re-sited on private land the landowner is under no obligation to display the stones, or to keep them permanently – but we hope that many of the them will endure to form a long-term and intriguing monument.
Perhaps not as long-lasting as stone henge though.
It’s a bit different to the usual public art!
The students sent out an explanation to all the people whose land would be involved, see below:
The project was Funded partly by European money – via Recreate by INTERREG, the European Regional Development Fund plus Section 106 money from local development.
