The National Trust at Runnymede is using Dyofix Pond Black to complete the magnificent ‘Writ in Water‘, a major architectural artwork by Mark Wallinger, in collaboration with Studio Octopi.
Writ in Water is inspired by Clause 39 of the Magna Carta, and also by the inscription on John Keats’ grave.
Situated at Runneymede, the award winning building celebrates the legacy of the Magna Carta using skylight and water, to reflect the words contained within Clause 39.
Mark Wallinger, the designer, comments: ‘In Writ in Water, the use of reflection to make the text legible plays against the idea of a law written in stone. Magna Carta curtailed this divine right and issued the first secular writ.’
