Wow…. 20 miles of ribbon!!!
I just read an amazing blog piece by mymodernmet.com about an art installation…
Graced with Light incorporates both music and video projection.
Artist Anne Patterson is behind Graced With Light, an installation consisting of nearly 1,000 satin ribbons with colors inspired by stained glass. It took the artist months to prepare, which she did in her art studio in Manhattan by constructing a 3/16-inch scale model of it with embroidery floss. Then, on site, it took Patterson and the Grace Cathedral community eight days to hand-assemble the project.
The picture speak for themselves I think, AMAZING and Beautiful, Please can we do more like this in our public buildings, so simple yet so effective!
You can read more on the Grace Cathedral website here

Paper, tape, light.

Today is a good day.
We are lucky enough to have the very talented Caileen working along side us for a short while, I can’t wait to see what wonderments she comes up with.
Caileen recently graduated from Heriot watt university with a 1st class Honours degree in Fashion Communication and design.
Her work is so in tune with what we’re doing it was a no brainer to get her on board!
Check out her video from her Degree show here. Brilliant!
Here’s a link to her blogs
Once again I’m seduced by the relative simplicity of this work by Mathieu Rivier.
A faceted structure is placed on a plinth where interaction is enabled by touching it. The shape is heat-welded semi-transparent plastic which allows the projection and detection of fingers from inside the structure. Rivier says “I particularly liked not just working on the code of a software programme but also on its material implementation.”
Hats off I say, it’s beautiful.
Lot’s of thoughts regarding 3D printing and textiles to produce a faceted surface… BIT (bring it on!)
