Where would we be without physics? Ha ha, a little science joke for you there. Yeah OK, science isn’t often very funny, but it can be beautiful – just have a gander at the collaborative work of Hackney design studio Haberdashery and photographer Julian Abrams for proof positive. Freq. is their study of the geometry of light, a physical representation of the mathematics that accounts for everything we see constructed in a series of installations and photographs at Hoxton Gallery.
Six sculptures made with LEDs and reflective stainless steel present the varying behaviour of light, from the simple to the dazzlingly complex. In the series of three ArcFrequency pieces, viewers look into the sculpture though a portal to experience the shifting patterns, which have an almost cellular, organic quality. They are accompanied by 10 limited edition prints from Abrams capturing a snapshot of the experience. The exhibition, to mark the summer solstice, will be lighting up the gallery at The Arch until 27th June.
