Team London Bridge and Fantasy High Street are delighted to announce our five commissioned installation artists for this year’s London Bridge Live Arts Festival, 25-27 Sept.
These artists will be creating interactive installations, each one focusing on a different human sense: Sight – ‘In My Shoes’ by Sublime & Ridiculous, Sound – ‘Beacon Choir’ by Thomas Williams, Smell ‘Spice Mix Super Computer’ by Abandon Normal Devices, Taste – ‘The Toast Temple’ by The Brick Box and Touch – ‘Touch’ by Cara Flynn & Jonathan Munro.
The Festival is FREE to attend and follows much acclaimed programmes over the past two years.
Five installations, each centred around a human sense
SIGHT: In My Shoes by Sublime & Ridiculous
Explore the world’s absurdities from a stranger’s perspective through
this audio-visual interaction.
SOUND: Beacon Choir by Thomas Williams
An interactive installation that gives visitors the power to use music
and light to guide their path through a darkened space.
SMELL: Spice Mix Super Computer by Abandon Normal Devices
A massive mobile food machine allows users to create and taste a unique
blend of spices from millions of possible combinations.
TASTE: The Toast Temple by Brick Box
Bathe in the presence of The Toast Temple, to rejoice in the golden
majesty of The Slice and share your devotion.
TOUCH: 'Touch' by Cara Flynn and Jonathan Munro
Using one thousand 2p coins to create a giant pinhead impression wall,
consider how we’ll no longer be able to touch money soon and the implications
this could have on our lives.
