Between the 14th and 17th January this year Lumiere London took place at four sites around the capital. I only found out about it at the last moment and having seen that one of the exhibits was to be sited in Regent’s Place near Warren Street tube, I nipped over to have a look at it on my way home.
This piece was called “Platonic Spin” by Nathaniel Rackowe.
Rackowe is a graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art and apart from an interest in neon, creates other large scale structures using well recognised materials such as scaffolding and shed doors (!!) mixed with kinetic elements.
My intention to return to the other sites of Lumiere was thwarted by both the inclement weather and the sheer numbers of people trying to access the venues. I’m not sure what the photo opportunities would have been even if I had made it. Apparently, Kings Cross tube station had to be closed on the Saturday evening for safety reasons. Hopefully, with a bit of forward planning (both mine and the organisers) I will be able to visit the 2017 event.
