The Beacon series reinstates historic fire beacons using a portable neon kit. Each installation is an event which consists of a trek to a high point from which warning signals were once sent across an expansive landscape. The neon beacons recreate this visual passage and exist for a few hours from dusk into night during which time they send messages and tell stories.
This is an ongoing and progressive work within which musson+retallick encourage collaboration and challenge the notion of the gallery as a space for showing work. A map is gradually being drawn which will collect all of the locations and memories of events.
