LED installation Westminster University

This latest display, in Westminster University’s Central London campus, was unveiled in May 2011 in collaboration with the Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies. It is the latest in a series of interconnected displays in academic institutions in the UK and US under the title ‘International Distributed Display Initiative’ (IDDI). As with the lightwell installation at St Martins, staff and students from the departments of Arts and Humanities are given log-in details to upload content and coursework on the display for public view. They can also remotely access displays in other academic institutions, uploading and modifying their works by viewing webcam imagery online.

Unlibrary, a discussion of the future of the book

In March 2011 a discussion was initiated between Chris Meade of the Unlibrary, novelist Romesh Gunesekera and Peter Cornwell about the changing role of the book as object, the digital text and the future of reading. The proceedings took place at the Unlibrary - an experimental space for reading and writing and bringing the digital into the physical - at Hornsey Library, North London. The discussion was filmed by BLIP for Mute as part of an ongoing investigation into digital capacity within cultural organisations.

Madam at Kings Place

This BLIP-produced LED structure was developed for the express purpose of executing rapid installations for one-off events. On this occasion, the structure was erected in a matter of hours on the day of the performance, by band Madam, held at Kings Place, a new arts venue in King’s Cross. The light installation itself is connected to a Midi keyboard played live by a band member during the gig.

Canal Isabel II, Madrid

This work, Travesías by Daniel Canogar, was commissioned by the City of Madrid as part of the art fair Arco Madrid and installed by BLIP in January 2011. The venue is a water tower in central Madrid and the installation remains in situ until the end of June 2011. The display is attached to laser-cut fabric which allows the structure freedom of form. The display’s roller-coaster shape, running 30 meters down the entire length of the tower, is supported by a wire-suspended aluminium frame. The installation took only three days to complete and BLIP monitor the work’s performance remotely from London headquarters and provide remote maintenance via the internet for the duration.
