Bristol University-developed art installation on display at Brunel's Old Station
AN ART installation developed at the University of Bristol has come to Temple Meads as part of an international festival of theatre, dance, opera, feasts, talks, parties and public art.
The festival, called In Between Time 13 (IBT13), is happening in venues and public spaces across Bristol.
The light and sound installation, called We See Fireworks, was formed from hundreds of voices and was devised and created by IBT13’s director Helen Cole, a visiting fellow at Bristol University's drama, theatre, film and television department.
The piece is an archive of “living audience memories” where funny, haunting, vivid stories of incredible performances gathered from around the globe remind the audience what lies at the heart of every theatrical experience.

Ms Cole said: "We See Fireworks, which was developed at the University of Bristol and now tours festivals and events around the world, is not only an intense audiovisual experience for audiences but an on-going piece of research.
“It collects fragments of audience experience as it tours the world, and feeds these into the next incarnation of the installation ensuring hundreds of voices are heard as the work continues to evolve.”
Audiences are asked for memories of a moment of performance that has changed their life or stuck with them in some way.
This “firework memory” could be a traditional memory, like a moment on stage at the theatre or it could be a dramatic or memorable moment from their own lives.
The best of these are recorded and edited into the installation.
The piece is now running at Brunel's Old Station, by Bristol Temple Meads Station until Saturday 16 Feb from 11 am to 6.30pm. Admission is free.
