a green beacon
a green beaconHackney Wick has its fair share of scaff-plank chevrons and reclaimed timber structures, maybe its time for something cleaner and more scientific? Based on the Fresnel Lens, I designed this sign to stand out from the surrounding post industrial area - and that it does!Fish Island Labs are a temporary artists' studio space initiative from The Trampery and the Barbican Centre, based on Swan Wharf in Hackney Wick, where lots of similay exciting projects are currently happening.
Perhaps the main achievement of this sign, besides the unusual geometric construction, is the way it changes as you move passed it. The gill-like surfaces seem to disappear into black and reappear as a glorious green mirror, outlining and then completely engulfing the ornate text in front of it.
