Still is a large-scale projection of 700 images taken in a forest by a solar-powered camera and touched up with computer software.

The project captures a year in a Kent woodland and shows the changing sequence between dusk and dawn that you are likely to see in a single day throughout the seasons. The show takes place in a chapel in the Wakefield park.

Finer left the Pogues 15 years ago and has won acclaim with his multimedia art practice, which draws on his early training as a computer scientist.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park was the first sculpture park in the UK and is the largest of its kind in Europe.

Works by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore are set in 200ha of historic parkland, which attracts 350,000 visitors a year.
