The Ghost of Estella was commissioned by Newcastle Gateshead Initiative for Enchanted Parks 2014 on the theme of ‘The Stargazer of Saltwell.’ SDNA created a series of projections exploring Estella’s obsession with stargazing and her connection to Saltwell Park, presented as an ethereal apparition of a Victorian girl, playing with fantastical celestial creatures, sited in the undergrowth of the Saltwell Dene.
