Void with Dan Tobin Smith @LDF2019
Light, form, and time

London Design Festival presents VOID, a collaboration between Dan Tobin Smith and The Experience Machine, an exploration into the phenomena of light and time through the lens of included gemstones.
Inclusions are abstract, galaxy-like structures enclosed in gemstones that are almost as old as the earth itself. Each stone’s unique microscopic fingerprint is a snapshot of its own history, a dynamic moment frozen in time.
The installation explores these ancient forms, contrasted by fleetingly transient light captured momentarily in specially constructed vitrines. Using immersive sonic systems driven by the human voice, we disconnect and begin to question the nature of time, form and process.
