SQUIGGLE – Interactive Outdoor Art Installation

More Details

Embark on a transformative journey through the unexpected with NEON's SQUIGGLE, an immersive art installation reimagining how space and materials are used, at Citypoint from June to September 2024.

‘Squiggle’ was inspired by the non-linear reality of life. People make plans to go from A to B, and often picture these plans as direct lines. However, the actual process is irregular. Our path can suddenly change or develop in different directions at the same time. This squiggly line of direction can feel frustrating, but it is the part where we learn, grow and make important realisations of our journey.

This installation is constructed using 3 repeating modules that are clad in lengths of flexible PVC ducting often used in building works. The modules are arranged in such a way that visitors can interact with the artwork by sitting, walking over and laying across the work.

‘SQUIGGLE’ is part of LFA (The London Festival of Architecture), a month-long celebration of architecture and city-making, taking place every June across London from 1-30 June.
