Highlights from ARC


It was great to see the ARC Show back to where it all began, at the Business Design Centre in Islington. The rain didn’t deter the crowds attending Leni Schwendinger’s LightWalk, where she took participants on a stroll of the area, decoding the shadows, emanations and reflections that define the nightscape.


Back to its roots at the BDC, this year’s ARC Show offered a diverse mix of new technology.


CLICK Scolmore


Of particular interest was the preview of three installations from Kinetica Art Fair. These unique installations from Italy, Spain and South Korea explored the interwoven complexities between scientific developments and the human condition though the convergence of art, science and technology.


An exclusive partnership between CLICK Scolmore and Energetic Lighting has resulted in a comprehensive range of low energy lamps. Architects, designers, specifiers and installers working to comply with the latest regulations will benefit from the new Click Energetic portfolio of high power LEDs and the Quick-Start CFLs and low energy fluorescent lamps, which provide direct alternatives for standard incandescent lamps without compromising on shape, size or light effect. www.scolmore.com


Lazerian


Whistling Sea by Ga Young Jun from South Korea is inspired by the Jeju Sea. Jun's rhythmically arranged hanji paper emanates transparent sea colours and hues; ultramarine, peacock blue, yellow, green and pink; the colours of light seen through the eyes of impressionist painters. Jun strives to communicate not through an art that is understood but an art that is felt. Carlo Bernardini used optical fibre to produce Light Works, which overcomes the physical walls of space, pushing it to the limits of an illusionary dimension. His work combines the external environment with the internal one: “Permeable space”, the place where Light generates space. Finally, Alex Posada presented ‘The Particle’, an installation inspired by the creation of the earth. His work translates the formation process of complex molecules into the language of light by experimenting with colour, sound and movement, creating a space for a sensory and kinaesthetic experience.
