An outdoor interactive Installation made specifically for FLUX Exhibition on show from 11th -16th April 2018, situated on the North East side of the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at The Chelsea College of the Arts.
Wandering in, you will be immersed into a mini version of another world. As you walk through a simple series of interlinked compartments, the changing colours will cast a spell and you will have joined ‘The Inevitable Experiment.’ Linger awhile and maybe for a moment you might find yourself under your own skin, looking out from within and then in another zone, perhaps you will be on the edge of the Universe, looking in. Or dodging the silent burns of the outer limits of the infrared and the ultra violet, beyond which, even here, permission is denied. Under another membrane you could become a choroplast forever compelled to make sugar from sunshine. Or simply enjoy the calmness of the colour experience and bathe in the mood and the associations of your own favourite colour.
In this installation, ‘The Inevitable’ filters of perception are shaped like huge living cells, where a trick of the light creates a specific environment, a momentary mirage of existence. The experience mimics the EM (Electromagnetic Spectrum) - specific view and both defines and confines our sense of self. The alignments in time and space will channel your associations and whilst occupying your mind the artifice will facilitate a strange yet familiar sense of place thereby controlling your belief and placating your will to venture elsewhere or beyond.
The installation took a mere 220 yards of Organza, 40 yards of Crinoline and 250 hours of sewing to complete!
