‘The Big Five-O’
– an installation celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the designation of the new town of Milton Keynes.
Designed and curated by Paul Farrell, commissioned by David Lock Associates.
Light has always played an important role in the function and identity of Milton Keynes, from practical considerations of safety and legibility through to the decoration and illumination of key buildings and spaces. This installation references all those various functions and interplays of light, celebrating, and illuminating, the achievements of the ‘New City’ as it moves forward with confidence towards the next 50 years.
