A stunning field of fibre optic lights will pop up at Millennium Point this Friday 18th December. Visitors will be able to view and control a unique and interactive art installation.

Commissioned and presented by Birmingham Hippodrome Creative, British-Chinese artist Aowen Jin's new outdoor artwork 'Midlight' invites people to create their own light displays.  Through cutting-edge digital technology and social media interaction, the colours can be changed both with sound (music, singing, clapping etc) and via Twitter.

'Midlight' features thousands of LED lights with 90,000 colour variations which adjust so that no two experiences with the artwork are ever the same. The project is the first of its kind to include the participation of Birmingham’s local Chinese community who live and work around the Hippodrome in the Southside district.

Aowen Jin is a renowned British-Chinese artist who works on critically-acclaimed public commissions that challenge cultural perceptions and social inclusivity.

Viewing 'Midlight' is FREE to the public. It can be seen on the second floor of Millennium Point on Friday 18 December from 1pm - 4pm, when it will move outside to Eastside City Park. There will also be two musical acoustic performances throughout the afternoon.

Visitors are encouraged to tweet the name of any colour to @himidlight and the installation will change colour!
