Bourrasque by Paul Cocksedge Studio for the Mairie De Lyon, Fête des Lumières, 2011.
In both scale and technique, this is an ambitious project. Bourrasque measures 25 metres in length and reaches over 15 metres at its highest point. The 200 A3-sized sheets are made from electroluminescent (EL) material, a technology which has recently advanced rapidly to produce a range of sophisticated colour temperatures, in thin and extremely flexible sheets. Each of these double-sided sheets has been individually moulded by hand in London, and then assembled on site in a structure of extraordinary finesse and detail barely visible to the human eye.”
