It is illuminated with Talbot’s signature of complementary blue and orange lighting, and large black reflective Barrisol panels are used to expand the width of the space, offering a fragmented view of changing colors, faceted reflections, and light. Flynn Talbot explains, “I conceived the idea standing in the gallery, and wanted to add my story on top of the beautiful existing architecture but not to take it over. With all of my work, I want to create new experiences using light that build a connection between people and place.” Truly an illuminated design experience.

7-Transmission by Ross Lovegrove

The structured chiaroscuro of the tapestries is here translated into the soft rolling folds of the installation itself. Gold and silver thread will be used to capture the existing light in the space and reveal the line of the form, while the aged dyes within the tapestries have been faithfully replicated and transformed into a new digital skin. My installation is an intuitive emotional response towards the immersive physical impact of the works within the space. Transmission is the three-dimensionalization of the two-dimensional tapestries into a single, sculptural, tactile fold.’, said Ross Lovegrove about his installation.

8-Bankside Design District

Made from vinyl, sealed PVC inners and high-strength nylon, it is a ‘soft-textured building-block castle’ covered and colored with digitally printed patterns. The component shapes are stuck to the ground and inflated by fans, transforming them from flat forms into a 3D temporary island of shape and color that begs to be explored, invites playfulness, relieves stress, and visually dominates the area.
