Curtain Call

Ron Arad, the artist, architect and industrial designer has a new installation at the Roundhouse, a concert/performance space in London. For this installation he created a curtain made of silicon rods, suspended from a large ring on the ceiling. The curtain is used as a 360 degree screen for projecting videos by artists and designers he collaborated with for this project. The audience experiences the projection inside the curtain surrounded by and immersed in video, sound and light. Below are excerpts from 3 of the 12 pieces shown in this installation.

Animation by Babis Alexiadis is below.

The next piece is an animation by Javier Mariscal.   

The final piece is by Greenaway & Greenaway reflecting the architecture of the Roundhouse
