This summer, a heavenly new installation will appear in the Somerset House courtyard.
This stunning kinetic sculpture will consist of over 100 mirrors that track the movements of the sun, projecting a halo-like ring produced entirely by natural light.
The creative installation, developed by Anglo-Korean duo Kimchi and Chips, will be made up of two towers, water jets and more than one hundred mirrors that move throughout the day, according to the sunlight. Rays of sunshine will then bounce off the mirrors to form an angelic halo that will float above Somerset House. A perfect example of how technology and nature can come together in beautiful ways.
Alongside the installation, there’ll also be an open studio that will reveal the hard work and ideation behind the sculpture. There will also be other examples of Kimchi and Chips’ previous works on display.
Location: Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court, Somerset House, Strand, WC2R 1LA. Nearest stations are Temple and Embankment. See it on Google Maps.
