As part of the Anglepoise / Strong Island / University of Portsmouth Creating Balance project Tristan and myself have been working as one of the creative partnerships with our Anglepoise lamp placed into the cold water of Langstone Harbour about a month or so ago. We’ve had the invaluable help of underwater filmmaker and photographer David Jones and the guys at Southsea’s own Triton Diving with this project and today David visited the spot where our lamp (and David’s own lamp) have been secured under the waves…needless to say we are in awe with the changes that have taken place. Sea life has enveloped the lamp including seaweed and crustaceans and all this in just a matter of weeks.
The lamp will stay there for another month before coming out of the water in preparation for the upcoming exhibitions and photography. We’ll also be announcing full details of the Creating Balance exhibition as part of the London Design Festival next week plus some more creative partnership videos too.
