Halo is the ultimate in the Panopticons, a series of Public Artworks to provide new landmarks for East Lancashire.
The original creative vision behind Halo was created by LandLab, a practice with a background in collaborative, cross-disciplinary work in landscape architecture, ecology and public art. Booth King Partnership worked in close collaboration with the designer and the lighting consultant to realise the artist’s vision.
The design for Halo consists of an elegant steel UFO-like disc mounted on a tripod, with low-energy lighting applied to give it the night-time appearance of hovering above the former landfill site at Top ‘O’ Slate in Haslingden.
The success of Halo has already been recognised by the award in the Totally Inspired! Category at Art 07 and a shortlisting for the Structural Steel Awards.
