We are a husband and wife duo of artists living and working in the beautiful Blackdown Hills. We create large scale multi sensory installations that we are lucky enough to tour internationally.
Within the relatively new genre of light art we are leading the field when it comes to interactivity, blurring the boundaries between entertainment and art, creating fully participatory illuminated installation work for public spaces around music and musical instruments – which by their very nature are hugely interactive. We strive to create truly believable and authentic experiences for our audiences, something to be experienced, not observed. Instilling a sense of awe and wonder in all those that encounter our work. We embrace technology but never allow it to guide the design of the work. Instead we ask the question ‘what will be the social function of this artwork?’ and then ‘what form will that take?’ The social function of illumaphonium is always the same – togetherness. Something we as humans are craving now more than ever.
