Our first interactive body movement artwork launched across the Outernet in February 2023 with a different experience in each of our spaces. Created by immersive experience studio Pixel Artworks with visual light artist Rupert Newman, The Spaces In-Between enables visitors to sync their body movements with a breath-taking digital light artwork on the largest digital canvas in the world.
As you move, so will the digital screens, making the artwork genuinely interactive. Visitors will benefit from a multi-sensory experience of art that pulls them away from everyday distractions and activities.
‘Spaces In-Between’ consists of three artworks: ‘Tessellations’ and ‘Transcendence’, which will transport visitors through a digital natural world, and ‘A Step Beyond’. With this interactive experience, geometric shapes respond to every body move.
Accompanying audio by British composer Sarah Warne (Channel 4’s Humans, BBC’s Time and ITV’s Des) enhances the feeling of being enveloped in a full-body experience.
Implemented by Pixel Artworks, artist Rupert Newman’s creative comes to life across the entire Outernet district, the largest digital exhibition space in Europe, from The Now Arcade – a 21-meter-long LED tunnel, through to Now Trending and the Now Building – four storeys high, 360-degree wraparound LED screens.
Rupert Newman said:
“Through being immersed in fracturing light, people can find harmony and balance. Working with such a large space has given me the freedom to create at scale for thousands to experience. The result is captivating.”
Dan Alldis, Innovation Lead at Pixel Artworks, co-creators of ‘Spaces In-Between’, said:
“Nothing brings us more joy than creating experiences that enable people to take a moment away from the constant hustle and bustle of their everyday lives. 'Spaces In-between' proves that breathtaking art can be accessible to everyone and experienced in the most unlikely spaces, such as in the heart of busy central London. It is an open invitation for anyone to explore a non-traditional art form in a non-traditional way for free.”
Alexandra Payne, Head of Creative at Outernet London, added,
“London is often revered as the UK’s creative capital, but not enough people have the opportunity to experience world-class art for free. This experience aims to change that. Everyone is welcome to indulge their creativity at the first interactive and fully immersive installation at Outernet London.”
