Lightfield, a new light exhibition by W1Curates and British-American artist Anthony James, is on display at Marble Arch beneath the Mound, until December 2021.
There are several components to the free exhibition, including what can be described as an infinity room, consisting of cubes formed from stainless steel, specialised glass and LED lights, placed in a square grid.
The cubes are connected via ethernet cables, which simulate the interconnected root structure of a birch tree forest, and communicate with one another creating a large canvas for light to dance around.
It is all controlled by a single computer ‘brain’ and has an interactive element which allow the light to follow visitors as they walk through Lightfield.
The artist, Anthony James, has been creating post-minimalist sculptures that use tricks of mirroring since the 2000s.
Lightfield is supported by Westminster City Council and W1 curates and is showing beneath the Mound in Marble Arch until December 2021.
The light exhibition is free for visitors. To guarantee timed entry book in advance.
Lightfield consists of 12 cubes that allude to the mycorrhizal nature of birch tree forests. This is the first time my work has been displayed and viewed in this fully immersive way – installed within an infinity room that transports visitors into another world to create a meditative and limitless narrative.
