Come see the Stairwell transformed by rubber silicon offcuts and LED lights and a spherical shelter made entirely from estate agent boards.
Lucy Fergus is taking on the challenge of the stairwell space, sourcing waste rubber for her dramatic installation ‘Re-silicone Lining’. The silicone constructions are inspired by stalagmites and stalactites and form an eerie yet enticing hanging display above the main staircase.
The hanging columns are a combination of textural and illuminated pieces in various sizes filled with white LED lights which emit a subtle glow by day and come alive by night.
Re-silicone combines the striking aesthetic and tactile qualities of rubber silicone through a diverse range of eco-conscious interior products and accessories made from industrial off-cuts. Re-Silicone Lining creates a hands-on opportunity for the public to appreciate and celebrate this fascinating material, raising awareness of industrial waste and its impact on the environment.
Artist and graphic designer Nick Sayers is the creator of 'To Live', a geodesic shelter made entirely of estate agent boards. It questions the dominant housing market model and makes a statement about homelessness and self-build housing. Passionate about environmentally-friendly transport, he will transport his work to The Lightbox in a biodiesel van.
