LightShift was an ambitious, temporary artists’ illumination event in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, that ran for seven nights from late October 2001 in the aftermath of the Foot and Mouth epidemic. The Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust (FDST) with its project partners wanted an event with wide appeal that would raise local confidence after the devastation left by the disease. Two lead artists were appointed to work with the project co-ordinator to select the final programme totalling 25 projects by seven artists. LightShift complemented the FDST’s permanent commissions programme.
