Those tiny little sparks

Alison Turnbull has recently completed a commission for Peterhouse Technology Park in Cambridge. Taking inspiration from the surrounding architecture, and the microchips being designed inside, Those tiny little sparks borrows its title from a song by Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp.

'I quite like the idea that the people who are looking at it every day might be asking questions of it that, as a visual artist, I might not normally ask of a piece of work [...] If I don’t set out with an end in view I really feel like I’m another spectator in one way trying to discover something as I go along.'

You can learn more about the commission in the accompanying film here.
