prostheticknowledge: HALO Public installation by Kimchi and...

HALO

Public installation by Kimchi and Chips features an array of callibrated mirrors and mist dispensers that, under the right conditions, presents a glowing halo shape in the air with sunlight:

Halo forms a circle of light suspended in the air above the Edmond J Safra Courtyard at Somerset House, created by an array of 99 robotic mirrors which track the sun. Each mirror draws a beam of sunlight into the mist of water. Together the straight beams are shaped together to draw a circle. 

When we first visited Somerset House, we were particularly struck by the quality and colour of the sunlight in the courtyard space as it reflected from the surrounding building.  This isolated volume of natural light and wind, contained within the architecture of the building, presented itself as a canvas for a new work.

We wanted to explore themes from our previous works in this new, less controlled, context. We imagined a work that would appear only for a moment when the wind, sky, sun, water and technology align together, before then disappearing instantly into the air.

To achieve this we need to engineer a careful balance between nature and technology, between coincidence and inevitably.  The moment that Halo emerges in the air the transience of life and eternal nature of time become simultaneously, briefly visible.

The installation is currently at Somerset House until the 27th of June. It is free (but it is best to check the weather reports in case it is, well, overcast).
