You can read her post here as Bel posted about the experience mere hours after we went, meanwhile I’ve got a whole backlog of posts to sort out. Every year the Serpentine Gallery commissions an architect or artistic group to create their outdoor Pavilion. For this year, the Spanish architects SelgasCano created a tunnel-like pavilion,  with connected chambers decorated with holographic ribbons, iridescent fabrics and streamers.

I feel like I’ve experienced a lot of these large, colourful chamber-type exhibits. The feeling of atmospheric wonder and of being immersed in a colour or particular visual aesthetic is incredible. I was a little bit underwhelmed at the Pavilion, although I think it’s always difficult to marry a unique aesthetic with functionality, especially in a temporary structure. Perhaps if  it had been on a larger scale I would have felt more dazzled.

My personal favourite experiences have been Colourscape and the Luminaria projects created by Architects of Air, which I have seen multiple times. Earlier this year I also experienced a light tunnel in Japan and walking out into the light gardens and fields was a truly incredible moment which took my breath away – you can see some pictures here. Have you visited anything similar?

    That looks very interesting, dear Laila, I would have loved being there, I love art! Especially freely created, I mean, through shapes fostering interpretations, sensations… I would really have liked to be there! I have to say that your top was amazing, an ice cream. I really loved it so much! I am glad to read another post again!

    I love interactive art like this! The Chihuly Glass Museum in Seattle seems to be on a similar vein 🙂 I hope you had a great time! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
