London's V&A Museum Transformed by Otherworldly Light Installation

Flynn Talbot takes over the museum’s Prince Consort Gallery

By //Arts

To coincide with this year’s London Design Festival, the city’s Victoria & Albert Museum has tapped London-based artist and designer Flynn Talbot for an immersive installation. Taking over the Prince Consort Gallery — a 35-meter-long gallery that was once used as a storage space — the light installation is described as a “color experience.” The installation features orange lighting tubes at one end of the gallery while the opposite end is filled with blue lighting tubes. The side walls in-between have been covered with reflective black panels that give the installation it’s “Reflection Room” name.

Speaking to Dezeen about the project, Talbot explained his choice of color: “The blue and orange combination is something I’ve been playing with for a number of years now. They are complementary colours, so they have a nice tension between them – the orange is very warm and alive, and the blue is very cool and calm.” The installation is open now, and runs until September 24.

Talbot’s work has often used light, with the designer unveiling an illuminated “Contour Mirror” for an exhibition in Seoul last year.
