#Repost @dubaidesignweek ・・・ Playing with light and colour, AGLOW is a captivating and energetic art installation created by @lizweststudio in collaboration with @nemozena, which will be on display at Dubai Design Week 2018. Aglow consists of one hundred and sixty-nine hemispherical fluorescent coloured acrylic bowls arranged on the ground in a hexagon shape; the edges of these multiple unplugged fluorescent bowls will glow as if charged with electricity. Liz West is a British artist who creates vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light, aiming to provoke a heightened sensory awareness in the viewer. She was named one of the UK’s most dazzling artists by @wallpapermag. Find AGLOW at the North terrace between buildings 8 and 9 within @d3dubai. . . . . #DXBDW2018 #lizwest #installation #artinstallation #light #colour #radiance #senses #artist #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist
