In a collaboration between National Museums Liverpool, 14-18 Now, Tate Liverpool and the Biennial, the Edmund Gardner was repainted as a Dazzle Ship back in 2014.
Last night, 1st October, as part of a nationwide event called the Night of Heritage Light the Dazzle Ship was lit up for just an hour. You couldn’t have picked a better night for it. The sky was beautifully clear with deep dusk blues and a crisp autumn chill in the air.
The event focused on lighting up several UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the UK. The idea was to promote lighting as both an art form and a science.
