Description: The idea for the wall plays with the notion of “illuminated manuscript,” exploring these issues in the imagery and text of the light box. This takes the medieval relationship between image and text and reinvents its form within a contemporary “illuminated” panel for the wall section.  While the style of the panel is derived from the formal set out with initials and miniatures, the text and imagery of the panel explores contemporary notions, such as text as a digital bit or part of a binary code, layered with pictorial and symbolic language.  The local history is the source of text.
