Luscious Lights and Decorated Domes – Frame magazine

Frame cover

 

The May/June edition of Frame magazine is an opulent, tactile affair. Frame shows us the potential of what it calls “the great indoors” showcasing contemporary interior design from around the globe. The magazine focuses on photos and drawings with the the story behind each design being written in easy-to-understand, down-to-earth English.  The current edition shows us (amongst other things) two very different but equally submersive interiors in the works of Liz West and Elise Morin.

 

Lighten Up

 

Liz West’s light art installation Your Colour Perception in the Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces Federation House in Manchester, saturates the space with artificial chromatic light. The artist says she is interested in “creating illusions and in making people question what they are really looking at.”

 

Play it again, Elise

 

Paris-based artist Elise Morin has conjured a multimedia event out of piles of old CDs and inflatable domes. The installation, Waste Landscape #4, turns an old swimming pool turned cultural centre in Slovakia into a scaly landscape. Each installation is a “social event”. For this work volunteers from the local jail helped attach the 180,000 CDs to the inflatable domes by hand. Lighting design and a specially made soundscape accompanied the structures.
