See the light this winter with Coalescence, a stunning art installation by designer Paul Cocksedge, at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. Coalescence is made from over 2,500 pieces of coal, cleverly representing the amount of energy consumed by a single 200W light bulb in a year. Suspended against the backdrop of the magnificent Painted Hall, this thought-provoking piece contrasts between the dark fossil fuel and the bright baroque ceiling. The coal pieces reflect and refract the light, creating an impressive effect that invites you to question our dependence on fossil fuels.

Coalescence is on display from 9 December 2023 to 4 February 2024, and tickets are £15.

Your ticket also includes access to Skittle Alley, all the tours of the Old Royal Naval College, and the multimedia guides. 

Make your visit even more special and book a Social Media ticket, which includes reduced capacity and allows selfies with the installation. You can also book a Quiet Hour ticket, which is designed for visitors with sensory needs.
