‘Curtain Call’ at Roundhouse by Ron Arad

11 Aug

If you have been to the IMAX cinema and Westfield’s ‘VueXtreme’ screen does not impress you anymore (mainly because your neck aches afterwards), there is something else in London that will undoubtedly capture your pixellated attention.

‘The Curtain Call’ by Ron Arad in ROUNDHOUSE is a stunning creation.

The original idea was to create a large-scale interactive installation that visual and performing artists could play with, around and within; something that audiences could immerse themselves in for as long as they wished.

In other words, it’s a floor to ceiling curtain composed of hanging, translucent plastic tubes with projections of video art.

But what they have achieved is something much greater.

The 360 degree ‘motion curtain’ will leave you lost in a secret forest with poisoned orchids, capture your attention with a private catwalk show of Hussein Chalayan’s latest AW2011 collection, or, if you are bored, entertained you with Javier Mariscal’s whimsical animations.

Judge for yourself. The installation will be there until 29th of August, 2011.

Be lost in the graphics of Roundhouse. This video directly inspired by the architecture of the Roundhouse explores the mechanics of this unique space. If you want to know what it feels like, imagine climbing into the Big Ben clock.

Didn’t I tell you? The installation is interactive, peak inside, walk through it or even brignt the kids to enjoy and run around in circles.

Explore the secret poisoned garden of Mat Collishaw with luxurious forests, waterfalls, giant wild orchids and diamond rain.
