The ’21st Century Light Space Modulator’ Is Finally Launched

You may have read my previous post about this collaboration project between Havells Sylvania, Jason Bruges Studio and the London Southbank Centre. Last night was the final unveiling of The 21st Century Light Space Modulator, located under Hungerford Bridge. The piece was inspired by László Moholy-Nagy’s work on the Light Prop for an Electric Stage in 1930. The modulator itself is an interactive piece of artwork that reacts to activity and motion, and was last night showcased by a 20 minute evening performance from South Asian dance studio, Akademi. The project is a visual representation of the Havells Sylvania philosophy: a fusion of invention, innovation, eastern and western influences which have the power to transform a neglected space through the use of light.

The modulator will remain under the Hungerford Bridge until November 1st, and after that it will be transferred to the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) until January 31st. For more information, please head over to the official website or check twitter at #modulator.
