Propeller

Propeller is a large-scale kinetic curtain for the facade of a building in South Kensington, London. The installation responds to the natural elements, visualising the beauty and the power of wind.

A system of modular fans would be moved by the wind in stimulating, dramatic wave of colours. The colour palette is carefully developed from chromatic studies of Kensington area, gently blending into surroundings.

The movement will be synchronised with interactive musical composition, responding to the strength and the speed of wind.

The ever-changing ripple of colours reflects the blurring boundaries of the disciplines – evoking the ideals of Albertopolis, the cultural and scientific hub of London. The projects aim to create a complete synergy of art and science.

I am working in ongoing consultations with several engineers, architects, composers and other specialists from various disciplines to make this vision come true.

    MA Animation, 2015

  • I am a London-based designer graduating from the Animation programme at the Royal College of Art. I have conducted extensive research in the cross-disciplinary use of animation presented in my dissertation. My work combines creative direction with design consulting to create innovative solutions bridging art, science and technology.

    I endeavour to reach different audiences, expanding the scope of animation and opening it to the world of architecture and engineering. Through exploration of the principles of animation such as the movement, layered meanings and affective influence on the viewers’ emotions, I intend to stimulate and enliven the architecture.

    My practice also focuses on creating a network of specialists whose cross-pollinating discussions can bring innovation across the fields.
