Soundskate is an interactive, sound responsive installation that feeds back the audio levels of the building through adapted skateboard trucks. Each wheel has been rigged with a custom LED system that forms part of a large graphic equalizer giving a visual insight into the energy of the MEC space. Viewers are also invited to interact with the microphones mounted within the piece giving a real time response to audio input.
Acrylicize has recently completed more than 80 art installations for the new Ogilvy Group UK Headquarters. The 20,000 sq. m workplace, located within Sea Containers, occupies a prominent location on the river Thames in London, between the Tate Modern and Oxo Tower. The space was designed in an innovative collaborative venture between BDG architecture + design and Matheson Whiteley.
The design of Sea Containers creates a dramatic, flexible and collaborative working environment, encouraging interaction between companies and their different divisions. Acrylicize were tasked with creating dynamic and engaging art work bespoke to the building, that reflected the company’s philosophies and values in visually striking forms.
