Via Lucem Continens

I've been doing some initial research, for what i'm naming my "GRAND" project, and i came across this project at STOUR VALLEY ARTs in Ashford, Kent. Via Lucem Continens is a piece they commissioned Lukasz Skapski around the turn of the millennium.
The resulting piece is an annual event in which the sun aligns with a tunnel created with yew trees as it sets on the longest day of the year. It looks at the forest as an example of the wonders of photosynthesis, as well as softly celebrating the ethereal quality of a midsummer's night.
