Located on the banks of the River Foyle, Mute Meadow was unveiled on 25 June 2011.

Located on the banks of the River Foyle along the south side of Ebrington Square, Mute Meadow was unveiled on 25 June 2011.

Created by two internationally recognised artists, Vong Phaophanit, a former Turner Prize nominee (1993) and Claire Oboussier, the artwork is made up of columns that reflect and refract natural light and create a play of shadows during the day and transform into a gently animated silent field of light against the night time sky. The palette of colours illuminating the installation was inspired by the stained glass in the Guildhall.
