Enamel colour swatches nearly ready for Amiens Project. These 2 metre strips are being made at AJ Wells, vitreous enamellers on the Isle of White. All the colours chosen have been matched to colours found in the Hortillonage, the floating gardens of Amiens. These will be installed in the next couple of weeks after being fixed to oak sculptures and installed in the Gardens. This is a public engagement project where the public choose the names of the colours via text and a website. http://www.jardinschromatiques.fr – the results will go to form a colour chart for the gardens. The opening of Amiens festival is 14th June.
Just completed the central mosaic for the main square of Southern Housing’s latest development in the East of Brighton. Collaborating with Jane Fordham the mosaic is 3 metres in diameter and a black, white and grey abstract design. Surrounding the mosaic are 8 re-claimed Victorian Lampposts fitted with colour changing LED’s- the residents will be able to control the colours of the lights via an app downloadable to their smart phones. The changing lights will also illuminate the mosaic and its neutral tones will be chromatically altered by the coloured lights.
Hove seafront – opposite Hove Lagoon – I designed these lights to follow the heights of the Shoreham tides. The building is 7 m high which is the exact height of the highest tide in Shoreham – It gives you a sense of the scale of our local tides.
You can see a time lapse thingy of it on the link below
Coincidently The ‘Blue Lagoon’ Pub is right opposite if you want to sit outside and have a beer and watch the light show, it does take a while though, so be prepared for a long evening of drinking.
