Ron Haselden

Ron Haselden (born 1944) is a British artist who splits his time between London and the French coastal town of Plouër-sur-Rance, in Brittany, France. He works with light, sound, film and video, often as part of architectural projects.

He was born in Gravesend, Kent and attended the Gravesend School of Art. After teaching for a number of years at Reading University he moved to France.

Frère Jacques (made in collaboration with Peter Cusack) combined a wall of light with children singing.[1] In 1993 he created a twenty feet high new moon illuminating the front of the South London Gallery.[2] Blue Passage (1999), made for the passageway between the South Bank and the BFI IMAX cinema in London, consists of 8000 blue LEDs sunk into the walls of the underpass.[1] In 1994 his barometrically controlled light sculpture at Peckham Arch, London was completed which uplights the arch canopy from four tree-like light posts.
