The last rite of passage on the way to the afterlife.
Monumental and mesmerising, Charon is a gigantic 32ft high rotating zoetrope with posed human skeletons mounted on its inner edge, fully powered by you…
Each night, bathed in dramatic light and sound, teams of volunteer operators will animate the mythological ferryman, who in Greek myth rowed the souls of the recently departed across the river Styx.
Originally created for Burning Man, Peter Hudson‘s extraordinary, kinetic installation will take over a new festival site in Royal Docks, bringing the spirit of Nevada’s legendary festival of art, community and self-expression to East London for the first time.
