happy weekend.


The Sun installation is a symbolic representation of the sun constantly changing from white to warm orange to burning red. The installation first travelled from Oslo to Tromsø in northern Norway, to light up the city in a period where it had no sunlight. It has now arrived in the UK to light up East London during London Design Festival (14-22 September) as part of the 100% Norway show at Tent London.

Site specific, the installation consists of a series of rings suspended from the ceiling of the Guggenheim’s rotunda. Each ring is lit from below by a series of ever-changing LED lights, and from above by the sunlight filtering down from the rotunda’s oculus. The piece cycles between colors, and over the course of the day, varying amounts of sunlight mean that Aten Reign is composed of an almost infinite variety of colors and states.

Argentine artist Leandro Erlich has been commissioned by the Barbican to create a new installation in Dalston. Resembling a theatre set, the detailed facade of a Victorian terraced house lies horizontally on the ground with mirrors positioned overhead. The reflections of visitors give the impression they are standing on, suspended from, or scaling the building vertically like so many acrobats. Erlich’s installation will be accompanied by talks, workshops and live performances, exploring themes of architectural history, urbanism and perception. More, here.

Avant-garde artist Leonid Tishkov has been travelling around the world with his mobile art installation ‘private moon’.
