Andaz collaborated with Veuve Clicquot and UK-based designers Harvey & John to come up with this off the wall – off the ceiling rather – exhibit that opened this month. This is an amazing merging of pop-up art, kinetic energy (energy from movement or motion), and illumination. Harvey & John are specialists in interactive art that they refer to as “living sculpture.” Their work will bring out the kid in all of us, no kidding. Now let your minds expand while we try to describe this ‘fantastic voyage.'
First get ye to the lobby of Andaz Liverpool Street. You will find yourself mesmerized by gigantic suspended spheres that represent-- what else-- champagne bubbles. Wait, there’s more. We live in an interactive world, and this is the kind of art you are supposed to touch. So jump in and get up close and personal with the bubbles, and when you do they will respond with a glowing soft light, and upward and downward movement.
After being fully immersed in this mind-bending abstract of a freshly poured glass of champagne, don't be surprised if you are handed a complimentary glass of the real Veuve Cliquot. We’re in.
