Power Station, Lucy Skuce, 2016
LUCY SKUCE has made a light installation and a film exploring her obsession with light and power sources, and long standing relationship with the now demolished Didcot A power station, which has been a major icon in her life. Working with artist Chris Oakley, Lucy designed and fabricated an illuminated light piece using electroluminescent wire, based on her drawings of the Didcot cooling towers. The film documents the design and fabrication of the work, and reflecting Lucy’s interest in the processes of demolition and construction. Lucy identifies with the hierarchical nature of the construction industry, and sees it as a parallel to the control Lucy sees as of primary importance in her own life.
