“The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime”
Sir Edward Grey, British Foreign Secretary, August 1914
Everyone in the UK is invited to take part in LIGHTS OUT by turning off their lights from 10pm to 11pm on 4 August 2014, leaving on a single light or candle for a shared moment of reflection. Find Out More here: www.1418now.org.uk
Here is our digital contribution to the project. Simply play back one of these loops on your TV, laptop or mobile device for the duration of the event. And of course, we’d love you to get a projector and beam it!
This is a part of The Big Picture – a pan-European video installation designed to creatively commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the First World War.
