‘Submergence’ can be interpreted in a number of ways; from a shoal of fish to a fantasy embellishment of a selection of coral, the piece encapsulates underwater themes in a creative approach.
Drawing parallels with the previous installation ‘Emergence’, a lighting sculpture located in Heathrow Terminal 5, the piece enforces a strong identity within the Caviar House & Prunier brand.
The artwork evolves throughout the day in its material, colour, lighting environment and events. During morning hours, a rich, gold material implies a dawn sunrise. Daytime reveals a silver, chrome appearance with warm and cool tones. In the evening hours, a tactile dark satin finish with cool blue and purple hues sees the piece through to the final hours of the terminal’s operations.
Within these evolutions lie a series of events that are inspired by subaquatic life. From golden rising bubbles, to shoals of light trails that spiral around the form. These transient moments occur throughout the day with more dramatic gestures occurring on the hour.
The piece is a part of a growing collection of sculptural interventions that Cinimod Studio has realised within the UK airport terminals of Heathrow, Gatwick and Standsted. Rising 6 metres in height and almost 2.5 metres in width, Cinimod have continued their journey of introducing innovative installations that provide retailers with a stronger presence within a highly competitive environment.
