Art in Surrey: in the frame 2011

PUBLISHED: 19:41 09 January 2012 | UPDATED: 21:40 20 February 2013

DEC 2011: An interactive artwork, inspired by the famous Enigma code breaker and one-time Guildford resident Alan Turing, offers the public the chance to have a go at code breaking themselves. Recently unveiled outside Guildford’s new G Live entertainment venue, the light sculpture, created by architects Amenity Space, relays text messages visually using 26 lights representing letters of the alphabet. The translation on the work changes every 24 hours, just as the German Enigma code did.

Originally published in Surrey Life magazine July 2011

With long summer days ahead, one of Surreys true hidden gems really comes into its own. Home to a few hundred sculptures (most of which are available to buy) set among arboreta and water gardens, The Sculpture Park in Churt is an absolute must for anyone with the slightest interest in art or the outdoors. Taking a packed lunch is recommended, as the park, which opened in 2003, unfurls over ten acres (though the nearby Pride of the Valley hotel provides an alternative dining option). Open daily from 10am to 5pm, entry is 6 for adults and 3 for children.



  • The Sculpture Park, Jumps Road, Churt GU10 2LH. For more information about visiting, call 01428 605453
