Celestial Dreaming at Enchanted Parks

On 10th December 2014

A sculptural installation commissioned by Pinwheel and Newcastle and Gateshead Initiative.

Enter Estella’s dream world: where her bed sits in the centre of planetary orbits and objects from her life float through her subconscious thoughts.

Over 150 years ago there was a little girl who lived in Saltwell Towers and dreamed of flying to the stars. But space travel in Victorian times is impossible to imagine…isn’t it? Enchanted Parks, through a series of artists’ installations, tells the story of Estella, the Stargazer of Saltwell, daughter of the stained glass manufacturer and creator of Saltwell Towers.
