EMERGENCE

AN ARTISTIC INTERPRETATION OF SCHOOLING FISH FOR CAVIAR HOUSE & PRUNIER WITHIN HEATHROW TERMINAL 2.

LONDON, UK – 2014

The lighting sculpture is named 'Emergence', and with playful relevance to Caviar House, captures the re-imagined movement of a school of fish moving underwater. It is a sculptural expression of the fascinating light patterns and shimmers that emerge across the collective bodies of fish as they move in harmony within water whilst reflecting the natural sunlight. This is physically manifested as a kinetic moment frozen in space and time, and re-animated through cutting-edge interactive digital lighting. These lighting patterns are controlled in real-time from a live physics simulation modelled on the complex movements of a school of fish within the ocean.

The audacious structure, comprised of LED arcs spiralling thirteen metres up to the ceiling, utilises a transfer of technologies from other industries, borrowing heavily from the engineered carbon fibre composites as found in the newest aeroplanes.
