Bubbles of Serenity
Greenwich Peninsula has partnered with the interdisciplinary designer, director, and digital artist, Lucy Hardcastle, to bring Winter on the Peninsula: Bubbles of Serenity. With a unique twist on tradition and looking a little different from the usual tinsel and trees, Bubbles of Serenity will take over the Peninsula from 17th November and promises to be a festive experience not to be missed.
Bubbles of Serenity is an exploration of digital yet naturally inspired utopia brought to life through moving images, depicting a change in season and the feelings and emotions that come along with this. Here, a digital natural utopia takes shape, featuring enigmatic, androgynous figures revealing the evolving world around them.
Throughout the journey, ubiquitous bubbles – symbols of joy, childhood wonder, and more – transition from clarity to a sparkling crystalline quality, guiding visitors from NOW Gallery through Canteen Food Hall & Bar and into the Design District. The large-scale projections seamlessly blend with the stunning architectural backdrop of the buildings, creating a captivating and unforgettable experience.
The moving images and light projections will contrast the darker days that we see in winter, with the overall installation evoking a sense of togetherness and community. In a season known for its hustle and bustle, Bubbles of Serenity encourages visitors to pause and reflect as they witness the captivating transformation of the landscape within the installation.
"I’m excited to be unveiling my largest ever installation at Winter on the Peninsula. For the work to be situated at Greenwich Peninsula and London’s Design District with the backdrop of NOW Gallery and the O2 is special. The holidays are often a busy period for people, so I wanted to encourage visitors to take a moment of reflection as they take in the changing seasons within the installation"
