Amenity Space: Jabberwocky, Leeds Metropolitan University

Amenity Space’s Jabberwocky was a short-lived artwork for 2007’s ‘Light Night’ – an evening of installations in Leeds on 12 October. In a courtyard at Leeds Metropolitan University, Amenity Space installed four 600m2, 2.4m-tall plywood boxes, mirrored on two sides, each reflecting a wall of 12 stained-glass panels commissioned by and documenting the work of engineer S Pearson & Son between 1844 and 1927. Accompanying text could only be read from the building’s interior, so mirrors were used to reflect the words into the courtyard.
