Loop.pH | LED Sonumbra Fabrication

As well as developing ideas and sampling for the Kensington Archilace project I have also been involved in fabricating the piece LED Sonumbra to be installed both at Elton John's Garden Party and a medical conference in Milan this weekend.

Each individual LED strip was covered in gold foil and glass beads before we structurally constructed the installation's form. I also learnt a fair bit about electronic wiring this week - as I wired up all the strips to the circuit in order for them to be animated.

I'm really enjoying being involved in all the aspects of creating these installations - learning new skills that aren't linked to a background in textiles but are practicalities of creating installation work.

I shall be back to post updates of the final installation at Elton John's Garden Party soon! Next week I shall be back working on the development of the Kensington Archilace.
