Client: Richard Weston Studio, UK.
"I’ve made an installation in a shipping container called ‘The Container of Curiosities’ to introduce the minerals I use to create images and ‘digital paints’.
Now I want to make a ‘Mobile Meadow’ of inflatable flowers based on children’s mineral-coloured drawings. Studio Soufflé have prototyped three of these and everyone who’s seen them – including me! – thinks they're great. Mahani and Gaia have managed to keep the slightly naïve quality, while doing a thoroughly professional job of crafting the complex shapes. Pending the full Meadow they’ll make a fascinating fine-weather addition to my re-designed garden. Next, an ‘Inflatable Forest’ in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern?"
Founder at Richard Weston Studios
We did a cool project for Richard Weston Studio. We were given sketches of flowers made by children and had to develop them into 3D giant flowers which could work as inflatables, structural and still keep the look, feel and essence of the sketches.
The colours on the flowers are a result of prints of high resulotion digital images of minerals such as agate, quartz, etc. These images are also used in innovative applications in architecture, urban spaces and gardens.
