Graduates from London College of Communication are set to light up Elephant Park this February as part of Elephant Glow.

Taking place from 12-18 February 2018, Elephant Glow will feature a set of “fun, interactive and thrilling light installations” created by grads from LCC’s BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts course that will celebrate the area’s past, present and future.

Visitors’ physical presence will activate the installations, giving them the chance to manipulate both the ambient light and colour of their surroundings.

Commissioned by Elephant Park and Lendlease, Marion Lagedamont, Rosie Allen and Tommaso Cesaro, who all graduated from LCC last year, have created 3 installations as part of the public display – Many Hands, Proximity Glow and Fibre Grass.

Many Hands

This interaction illustrates the common phrase “Many hands make light work”. The projected image is revealed as more and more members of the Elephant & Castle community stand together side by side.

Proximity Glow

As the visitors get closer to different segments of this installation, parts of plants and trees start to glow brighter, pulling you in to add to the ambient beauty of Elephant Park and its surroundings.

Fibre Grass

This installation allows the visitors to feel in control of Elephant Park, by sending a tweet with #elephantglow and requesting a colour, you can decide which colour to light the grass beneath.

Joel Karamath, Course Leader for BA (Hons) Interaction Design Arts, said: “Marion, Tommaso and Rosie were dedicated students with great ideas and a keenness to get involved in a number of industry projects throughout the course.

“Through their ongoing links with LCC as alumni, projects like Elephant Glow are a great opportunity for them to show the world their ideas and potential.”

Elephant Glow will take place from 12-18 February. For more information and to book tickets, go to Eventbrite. Keep up to date with the project on Twitter.
