|:||As part of the London Design Festival 2019 , Iri-Descent by Liz West was a suspended arrangement of 150 skeleton-framework cubes located in the atrium of the historic Fortnum & Mason store in Piccadilly. Clad with dichromatic film in two differing colourways, the cubes appeared to change colour as visitors moved around the atrium and between the floors above and below. There were two colour variations interlaced throughout – warm and cool – offering a multi-coloured range of hues. The highly reflective film also mirrored its surrounds and transmited complementary colours outwards. Iri-Descent formed part of an ongoing series of spatial light works, based on research into colour theory and light fields, that aimed to transform architectural spaces and public environments.|
