The installation, called The Conductor, enables visitors to create their own light show. The set-up includes a giant circuit board of cast resin switches and 160 fluorescent light bulbs connected to a bundle of wires. Visitors act as conductors that complete the circuit between the lights and the switches. Each switch also creates a sound when flicked, turning the installation into an audio, as well as a visual, experience.

‘Faye’s interactive creation [is] an immersive and inspiring visual experience, with light and colour dancing across the eyes,’ says Maurizio Mussati, CEO of Established & Sons. ‘I recommend bringing a pair of sunglasses.’

The industrial aesthetic lends a dystopian, futuristic feel to the installation, that is also evident in our Futurist Montage design direction.

The Conductor is on display at Established & Sons until 22 September.
