Everyday sketches transformed into sculptures of light in London’s Grosvenor Square.
Brothers and Sisters is part of an ongoing series of works created by Ron Haselden. Originally commissioned by Canary Wharf Arts, this installation was based on drawings by school children from the Isle of Dogs, London. These portraits of siblings were transformed into large sculptures using LED embedded light-rope. The work continues to grow as it travels to new locations and more children are invited to add new drawings to the collection. The portraits were situated on the lawn of Grosvenor Square in Mayfair for Lumiere London 2016.
