Own a gust of wind

Some 300 lucky visitors to the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Friday Late evening during the London Design Festival will be able to walk away with their own piece of a specially created Paul Cocksedge sculpture.

Cocksedge is working on the Gust of Wind installation – which will be in place for one day only before it is deconstructed and handed out to viewers. Hand-made from 300 pieces of Corian, the work aims to depict a stack of paper that has been caught by a gust of wind.

Cocksedge says, ‘I wanted to create something visually striking that captured a passing moment of beuty, but something that could then also be appreciated after the moment had gone.’

Anyone who wants their own piece of a Gust of Wind should head along to the V&A’s Friday Late event on 24 September. The installation will be on view from 6.30pm-10pm and will be dismantled towards the end of the evening.

Each of the individual pieces is CNC-engraved and has a unique number, and according to Cocksedge they make very handy paper trays.
