Many hands make lightwork on Minecraft

As part of a larger work for Rockingham Castle exploring and revealing layers of myth and history, artist Sarah Gillett presents Many hands make lightwork, an immersive digital artwork set within the nighttime grounds and historic figures of the site. Conceived by Sarah and built by artist Stuart Moore, this online world explores the very human ways we traverse landscapes in darkness. Here, fragments of correspondence, geology, astronomy and folklore exist as artefacts to be excavated and examined. 


Audiences are invited to play from home before more is revealed as part of the physical The Howse Shal Be Preserved exhibition at Rockingham Castle in 2021.


This is a multiplayer Minecraft world for Windows and macOS that is hosted on the Fermynwoods Contemporary Art server from 1 May 2021 – 28 January 2022.
