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.
