2004 – 2006 | London, UK
A close collaboration with architect, contractor and client has produced a successfully integrated and subtle work, which uses the fins on the façade to maximise the effect of the light conditions on the inside and outside of the building. The artwork is integrated within the structural glass fins of a small office building in Oxford Street, London.
Two façades, one on Oxford Street facing north and the second larger façade on a small side street facing west, are combined into a single expression by the use of a two-dimensional pattern overlaid onto the three dimensions of the building itself.
This process of anamorphosis results in a series of apparently horizontal lines created by the ‘void’ spaces between segments of intense blue colour and reflectivity within the fins when viewed from specific viewpoints.
Varying daylight conditions produce an array of effects, from intense transmitted colour to reflected light that interacts with the façade surface itself.
