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!
Our good friend and LAT Member Andy Winter went to print with his own take on this venture.
Here is a fullish account from the point of view of the students who participated in this project.
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.
