Flynn Talbot



A new exploration in colour and light, Flynn Talbot’s Primary is a three sided wall installation illuminated by three LED light sources. This is a reference to the primary colours of light, red, green and blue (RGB). These base colours of light have defined the quantity of light sources and the use of triangles. Everything in threes. The cardboard structure is designed to fragment the light and show how coloured light is mixed. Light and object are intrinsically connected.

This is a concept which has been scaled to suit the available space but can fit in many interiors. Visitors to the exhibition were presented with a long view of the piece, most thinking it was simply a 2D projection on the wall. On a closer look the 3 dimensionality of the work became apparent and the depth of the polygons (up to 2 meters) could be seen. The front and side view are very different, each offering a unique visual experience.

Primary has been specifically designed to create the right ratio of shadow which is then illuminated by the opposing light sources. Light and shadow are working together and through a 10 minute programmed light show, a real feeling of movement is created.

Australian Flynn Talbot runs a specialized lighting design studio, currently based in London, UK. He designs innovative lighting fixtures for mass production and lighting installations for galleries and unique buildings. His starting point is the same for each project; the ‘light effect.’ Every decision and detail is made with the quality of light and user connection in mind. This method creates timeless products that explore the way light impacts human experience and transforms space. His approach fuses memorable and bold aesthetics with fine detailing, while maintaining the essential human element.
