Multi-media artist Mark sheds new light on cathedral's history
A cathedral dating back to the middle of the 11th century is the focus of an innovative art project exploring its history.
Devon multi-media and visual artist Mark Ware has been exploring Exeter Cathedral for the past 18 months and interpreting its art and architecture through photography, abstract photomontages, 3D artwork and sound.
A series of evenings this week called "900 Years of Light" has been the culmination of his project, including a video composition bringing together images and architectural shapes, creating illusions of stillness and movement.
Mr Ware's art is designed to reflect his altered perception of the world brought about by a stroke in 1996 at age 39.
"Stroke affects everything I do and how I perceive the world. It influences all my art and it keeps me in the 'here and now' because of the physical and mental challenges it presents me with," he said.
"These images are my response to the cathedral, interwoven with music and spoken narrative. I hope they will offer a meaningful and rewarding response to the building, helping people to feel at peace and to come away altered in a positive way."
