Small colour LED lights placed into a white yoghourt container can be used to mix colours. A red LED in one container and a blue LED in another one, produce purple if they are facing each other. But not all LEDs are created equal. Some acts like a flood light; it projects its light in a wide angle and some acts like spot light (like the green in the picture below) and they can't fill the container with light.
We spent the week gathering objects, building furniture in the gallery such as multiple tables and shelves from wood and other materials salvaged from our studios. We tested the colour lighting area too; see the picture of Tegan holding a small black net in front of the colour light bulbs.
Here are some pictures of the gallery. All the (still) neatly arranged objects on the shelves are meant to be taken off off the shelves, handled, manipulated, combined, transformed and animated by you. We still have a little bit of work to do today in the gallery to get ready, but we can hardly wait until we open tomorrow, Friday, August 4th at 2 pm. In the next two weeks, we hope to meet lots of Londoners who are curious of how they can animate everyday materials.
We will start posting images and short texts here in our blog shortly before starting the project Friday, August 4.
And remember we will be open August 4-19, 2017 Wed-Fri 2-7pm, Sat 12-5pm
