Workshops are planned for people to suggest stories and objects for the Hove Plinth, a new cultural attraction on the historic Hove seafront designed to showcase the best in modern day sculpture.
The University of Brighton is working with sculptor Jonathan Wright who is creating the plinth’s ‘Constellation’, a mechanical model of the solar system and iconic images associated with Hove.
University experts are supporting Jonathan in the Constellation’s final design using 3D technologies for the digitisation of the icons and production of the sculpture.
Dr Karina Rodriguez Echavarria, Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics, said: “We are supporting Jonathan with our expertise in 3D technologies for digitising cultural heritage and enabling the production of the icons for the sculpture.”
“We are holding a series of workshops in the Brighton and the Hove museums in the next two weeks and we would like members of the public, our students and staff, to come along and tell us their views on the most exciting, relevant or significant places and landmarks in Hove that make it special and interesting, and to tell us what objects communicate why it is a place to be proud of.”
