Liz West Awarded Major Commission at National Media Museum
Light Fantastic celebrates the UNESCO International Year of Light. West has been commissioned by the Museum to create a brand new installation inspired by the theme. It comprises a large purpose-built room containing approximately 300 coloured fluorescent tubes combined with ‘infinity’ mirrors. Titled An Additive Mix, it takes the principle that white light is composed of different colours of the spectrum (additive colours) and places people in the centre of the phenomenon; saturating them in individual hues that collectively create an intense white glow in a seemingly endless space.
