News: Secret Garden Party’s Secret Arts presents: Lûz

The first-born concept of London-based multi-disciplinary collective Les Méchants, ‘Lûz’ is a truly spectacular achievement in modern, community-led design. As its name suggests, the installation is a celebration of light. A 3-sided pyramid structure, its exterior is mirrored to blend into its surroundings, while a series of polychromatic LED patterns on its interior are similarly reflected, creating a continual repetition that appears infinite. Changes in the lights’ colours are triggered by viewer interaction – with nine pressure points in the floor activated by walking, dancing, lying and jumping – and a new geometric landscape is revealed with each change within the structure. The result is a spectacular sensory experience, as participants are enveloped in the reflected patterns of the kaleidoscopic space.
