Geometry and light

As we hurtle toward the summer solstice, consultancy Haberdashery and photographer Julian Abrams will be celebrating the occasion by bringing to bear an exhibition inspired by geometry and light.

A series of six sculptures and ten limited edition photographic prints have been created.

Haberdashery has primarily used LEDs and polished stainless steel to produce the sculptures.

ArcFrequency, an edition of three, is perceived through a small porthole, which will allow viewers to glimpse changeable forms, that the gallery says equally give the impression of patterns viewed under a microscope or through a telescope.

Visitors will have a calm or a psychedelic experience depending on their perspective, which is altered by light hitting ball bearings within the piece.

‘Through the unique use of each of the hundreds of light sources, we create dramatically different scenes with the same geometry, and these scenes evolve in front of the viewer from highly saturated, luscious colour and highly contrasting patterns to subtle shades and flat geometries,’ according to Haberdashery.

Co-founder of Haberdashery Daniel Siden says, ‘For Freq we wanted to get back to basics, exploring the simplest forms and their interactions with light.

‘Our collaboration with Julian resulted in childlike play and experimentation, where we were looking to assemble elements that evoke a strong response within all of us, one of wonder.’
