A striking large-scale kaleidoscopic projection has been installed in Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s 18th century chapel.

The colourful art work, entitled Song for Coal, is an immersive audio-visual work by Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson in St Bartholomew’s Chapel.

Song for Coal explores the physical and cultural properties of coal as a cypher for environmental and conceptual impacts of carbon based economies.

It takes a form based on the flamboyant tracery of the apocalyptic rose window of Sainte Chapelle, in Paris.

Broken down into 152 separate panels, each section of the rose hosts its own individual film.

The exhibition is scheduled to run from January 10 to April 19.
