The Rock Bury Art installation - Look4ideas Design - Metamorphic Light
Collaboration of artist Jo Fairfax and lighting designer Adam Spinos from Look4ideas Design have joined forces to deliver an artwork for one of the most exciting regeneration projects of 2010 in the UK. "The Rock - Metamorphic Light" is a new city centre development for Bury designed by BDP architects. Jo Fairfax has created a concept of 24 light sculptures to decorate the main pedestrian area. Look4ideas Design took the concept and in close work with Jo and BDP have created a realistic design of 24 hollow light sculptures of various heights made from acrylic. Each light sculpture inside will be filled with Look4ideas' branded pixel LEDs and will have an ultrasonic sensor. The light sculpture has been designed to be interactive with the public and respond to different movements depending on the day of the year.
Look4ideas is also coordinating the delivery of this artwork. Adam Spinos comments - "This is a refreshing and beautiful addition to an exciting development despite the slow market. Our design skills have been pushed beyond what we thought possible". The artwork was delivered to the Bury public in the summer 2010.
