Philippe Morvan: DOT

Sponsored by:

See an enormous bank of light bulbs pulse, flash and beam across Pancras Square. The 175 light bulbs in Philippe Morvan's DOT respond to a soundtrack composed specially for Lumiere London by Solomon Grey, signed to Mercury KX/Universal Music. Alongside the music, patterns start to appear – an ever-changing panorama of horizontal and vertical lines, spheres and cubes.

French visual artist and set designer Morvan lives in Lyon. He’s interested in using sound and light to create narratives that respond to specific locations. His work has been shown across the world from Beijing to Jerusalem, Budapest to Xi’an.

What’s nearby?
