Nocturne - QEII Metro Bridge


'Nocturne', by Nayan Kulkarni, is a "permanent light and colour installation built into the fabric of the QEII Metro Bridge", between Newcastle and Gateshead.[1] It was commissioned by Nexus and was opened on the 26th of April 2007. A two-tone colour pattern on the girders of the bridge changes its aspect according to the angle from which it is viewed from during the day. At night, coloured LED lights, give the appearance of a ripple going across the bridge to  match the ebb and flow of the tide of the River Tyne below.
