The West end of London is lighting up with art this winter, as Connaught Village showcases two neon light installations from globally renowned British artists Rob and Nick Carter.
Located at 1 & 3 Porchester Place, Wavelength is free for the public to view from the 22nd October. The piece is set to be interactive, spanning across two shop fronts and responding to movement of passes by. Designed to run in an ever-evolving sequence it moves fluidly through each colour in the spectrum, varying in intensity and speed as it detects movement when the viewer passes the shop front.
There will also be a brand-new bespoke piece for the village at neighbouring 12 Connaught Street, on view from 22nd October. The second installation has been commissioned by Connaught Village and the Church Commissioners especially for the local community and will go on to be displayed in numerous locations around the village. The new piece built of 11 concentric Neon Hearts on separate circuits which inspired by Wavelength will change colour throughout the day.
To see more work by Rob and Nick Carter, you can visit their studio at 5A Bathurst Street, Connaught Village.
