Covent Garden / Constellation
‘Constellation’ was a light-based sculpture designed especially for the Covent Garden Market Halls, London, and commissioned by Covent Garden as part of their Delight Christmas campaign in 2008.
Constellation was a responsive 3-dimensional volumetric lighting and sound installation. It was the first of its kind in the world and featured 600 custom LED tubes elegantly encased in a one-way mirror film. Constellation was also individually controllable using a novel gesture control panel, giving the installation an intimate connection with the public.
During the day it was a beautiful grid of chromed columns suspended elegantly in the space. At night it transformed into a 3-dimensional volumetric lighting display.
