The Regent Bridge is Callum Innes's first light-based work: a simple intervention which floods a dark tunnel on Calton Road with colour to reveal the magnificent architecture of the Regent Bridge above. Working with architect and lighting artist Gavin Fraser, of FOTO-MA Lighting Architects, Innes has evolved a scheme that transforms the flat sides of the lower arch at street level into an illuminating plinth of floating colour. The work follows a series of set rules to create a structured and yet deliberately random order of coloured light, revealing and lifting the giant curve of the arch.
