Re-informed: Still/Moving

In our latest Re-informed interview we speak to the team behind Speedwell, the stunning light installation on Plymouth's Mount Batten Breakwater.

The project's creators are local art collective Still/Moving, a community interest company who were inspired by the events of 1620, when passengers on board the Mayflower set sail to settle in what they called the 'New World', a world already home to indigenous people.

Speedwell, the companion ship intended to sail alongside the Mayflower, was unable to make the journey across the Atlantic. Some of its passengers were therefore forced to return to England and find ways to make peace with the place they sought to escape.

Artists Laura Hopes, Martin Hampton and Léonie Hampton explain how their response is 'Speedwell' - and how it asks visitors to imagine new worlds of living, caring and dying well together and invites visitors to add their own voices in response to the sculpture in person or online.

Our short film will play here on the Mayflower 400 UK website and Facebook page here at 5pm UK time and midday EST on Saturday, 5 September.
