Sinta Tantra: A Beautiful Sunset Mistaken for a Dawn
2012 | paint; with underbridge lighting scheme by Lighting Design International | DLR Bridge over Middle Dock (exterior) | Art Map reference: 29
Sinta Tantra’s inspiration for her painting scheme was drawn from the natural elements, ever-changing light and towering buildings of Canary Wharf. Sunset and sunrise influenced her palette: blues and greys working well during the day; purples and pinks at night.
Lighting Design International’s lighting scheme brings the bridge to life at dusk. LED projectors under the bridge wash soft light from each end, the colours slowly changing from early to late evening.
