Child Hood

Collectif Coin (France)


A field of flickering balloons transformed Trafalgar Square.

Child Hood by Collectif Coin (France) co-produced by La Casemate, was a cloud made of a large number of luminous balloons, which lit up Trafalgar Square for Lumiere London 2018. The balloons moved gently in the wind, introducing an element of chaos into this otherwise meticulously ordered sound and light composition.

Grenoble-based Collectif Coin produce both monumental shows and intimate installations with trans-disciplinary works focusing on the digital arts. With a strong attachment to site-specific art, the French artists explore a dreamy and somewhat naïve vision of the digital technologies that surround us in everyday life through ideas about body, sound and light
