Flint by toyStudio at Norwich Arts Centre

Flint by toyStudio at Norwich Arts Centre

Norfolk’s history is celebrated in the artwork Flint by toyStudio, a series of mirrored totems placed around the grounds of the Norwich Arts Centre. Delivery of Flint was led by Norwich BID. The artwork’s shapes are inspired by the organic forms of the knapped flint walls, seen at the Church of St Swithin located nearby. Norfolk is famous for the naturally occurring flint, often visible across fields and heaths.

During the day, the mirrored surfaces reflect their immediate surroundings, creating a distorted mirror maze for the public to interact with. At night, the lights illuminate, and the mirror surfaces transform into a collection of seemingly endless infinity mirrors. The visible patterns have been derived through workshops exploring local features with members of the community and interpreted by Norwich-based illustrator Ellen Harling.

Flint has been created by artist Toby Plunkett, working with art collective toyStudio, who has previously designed work that has been installed in Canary Wharf, Sloane Square London and Arizona, USA.

Norwich Arts Centre is a live music venue, theatre and art gallery and a key part of Norwich’s cultural community, making it the perfect host for this artwork. St Benedicts Street is steeped in rich cultural heritage – with independent boutiques, galleries, churches and eateries there is plenty in the area to satisfy the senses.

The other artworks which form the Norfolk Way Art Trail are Flock at Diss Mere, Iron Reef at Reedham Ferry Inn, Honing Passage at Honing Station and Interval at Eastbourne Place in Norwich.
