Stuart WilliamsEnvironmental Artist
Stuart Williams’ monumental and environmental art installations have been critically acclaimed around the globe and captivated thousands with their evocative and mesmerizing presence.
The New York-based artist was planning an installation for the City of Dresden. 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the firebombing of the city in Eastern Germany during WWII. In homage to Dresden’s survival and renewal, and to honour this important anniversary of an iconic moment in world history, Williams installed “Lebensatem / Dresden” (“Breath of Life / Dresden”) at the historic Cathedral Ss. Trinitatis in February 2015. Waves of light, rising and falling at the pace of human breath, created the visual impression of respiration.
