My three must see exhibitions for this month explore interaction, music, and light sculpture.

 

Uncertainty Playground

This is an exhibition that can’t not be mentioned. As part of the London Design Festival, London College of Communication (LCC) are currently exhibiting the ‘Uncertainty Playground’. This exhibition explores the future of design through addressing issues of ambiguity and uncertainty that we currently face. One specific area of the exhibition that’s incredibly interesting is ’Possible/Probably Worlds’ which uses interaction design to explore how the future is shaped by technology and society.

Although at the time of writing this exhibition has yet to open, I’m so excited for it and I will recommend everyone to go see it. Back in 2015, Ann Veronica Janssens exhibited her installation ‘yellowpinkblue’ at the Wellcome collection which I would consider one of the best installations I’ve ever seen and if this new installation is anything like that one you are in for a treat. Her installations focus on using light and sound to create amazing environments where the audience almost become part of the installation.

Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains

If music is more of your thing, then I would recommend the Pink Floyd exhibition currently on show at the V&A. In this exhibition you can get a real sense of the huge impact on art and music this band had by getting a real close up look at their instruments, costumes, and stage props, including the giant inflatable sculptures the band is known for. At first entrance to the exhibition, you’re given a set of headphones that react to each area playing different excerpts of their music along with quotes directly from the band.
Admission is between £20-£30 depending on the day. Free for members: vam.ac.uk
