Brilliant at the V&A

I went to see Brilliant at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

"From the mundane to the extravagant, the strictly functional to the wildly ostentatious, Brilliant looks at the range of objects created in response to the desire for artificial illumination."

I took the camera and the macro lens.

This was all hand-held photography so some of it was difficult but the ones of lights themselves were bright enough to be blur-free.

Most of them are close-ups so are pretty abstract.

The exhibition is free and runs for about another 5 weeks, I highly recommend it.

  1. Having seen it before, I enjoyed seeing it again.

    I realised that you can blow onto the string in the UV table thing and make the art wobble. ;-)

    And I hadn’t realised before that the effects of the stalacmites were gained entirely from tape being wound around to different thicknesses. Simple but effective.

  2. Forgot to mention something very important indeed. The LED pictures and tables are excellent. And there are wires between the LEDs. Yes there are. You have to look very, very, very closely though!
