VISITORS to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield, will have the opportunity to experience an installation by Jem Finer, founding member of The Pogues.

Still is a large-scale projection of 18,000 images taken in a forest by a solar-powered camera and constantly reordered through computer software.

Commissioned by Stour Valley Arts in 2011, Still, captures a year in the Kent woodland showing the ever-changing sequence between dusk and dawn; an ebb and flow of time through which the viewer is as likely to witness the passing of a single day as the turning of a year’s seasons.

Since leaving the band, in 1996, Finer has established a respected multimedia art practice, which draws on his early training as a computer scientist.

Still will open to the public in the calm and atmospheric Yorkshire Sculpture Park Chapel on February 11. Picture: Jonathan Gawthorpe.
