Cyclists and walkers who’ve weaved beyond the Marina know there are few better places combining the geographically spectacular and tranquil than the undercliff at Rottingdean. So it’s a wonder, then, that more public art hasn’t been inspired by its beauty. The Digital Festival and Brighton And Hove Open Doors (who let the public in to hidden historic places each September) have organised this photographic foray by Jonathan Hyde, whose ambition befits the scenery. Projecting pictures, film and audio on to the cliff face, he wants to light up the space and show how it unites us, creating an amphitheatre within the crags of the chalk, positioning the wall as a fortress against the erosive sea. The projection starts at 7.30pm and lasts an hour and a half on both nights, and Lyn Neville of Brighton Walks hopes to convey the spirit of the undercliff with a short tour on the opening evening.
