THERE welcomes The Dubai Mall as client

THERE is excited to have been successfully appointed to work on substantial signage masterplan upgrades for The Dubai Mall.

 

The Dubai Mall is the largest mall in the world by total area. As the name suggests it is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is part of the 20-billion-dollar Downtown complex, made up of over 1,200 shops.

In 2011 it was the most visited building on the planet, attracting over 34 million visitors. 

THERE have been appointed to partner the client in undertaking masterplanning, signage audit and signage hierarchy extension across some newly built retail mall wings.

On the back of a strong client relationship THERE have also recently won a much larger signage project – more on that exciting news soon. Watch this space.

The Field of Light

60,000 lightbulbs have been flown from Wiltshire, England to Uluru, Australia by British Artist Bruce Munro. Read more.

The Field of Light

60,000 lightbulbs have been flown from Wiltshire, England to Uluru, Australia by British Artist Bruce Munro.

“The Rock” located at the centre of Australia is a work of art in itself - constantly changing colour from sunrise to sunset and reflecting various shadows and light across the blazing red landscape. For these reasons, the artist claims his installation is not trying to compete with nature. Rather, it is the pinnacle of decades of dreaming. 24 years ago after living in Sydney, a trip to Uluru changed Munro’s life. “I jotted this idea down in my sketchbook and didn’t think it would see the light of day. The sketch became the Field of Light.”

Powered by solar energy, the bulbs are also constantly changing and from afar look like a multicoloured blanket spread over a landscape. Visitors are encouraged to walk through the lights and create their own path as the bulbs are designed to be viewed at ground level. The work of art is reminiscent of the view captured from the window of a plane as you descend over a sprawling city. It has also been described as an Indigenous Australian dot painting and bright coral reef from a far.

The installation took 6 weeks, 40 people and thousands of man-hours to complete.

The Field of light is an example of an installation that is respectful to its surroundings. “That’s why it’s not bright – I purposefully toned it down. If you raise the light levels, you fight with the stars and moon.” As designers that work within the built environment, it is important that our creations enhance spaces whilst paying respect to the interior.

A New Reality

Virtual reality is presenting ever more potential for creative commercial application. How is your brand being experienced?

2016 is fast becoming the year that Virtual Reality becomes, well, a reality.

Long gone are the days  of The Golden Calf and the cliched epitome of 1990’s tacky tech that was our first attempt at this immersive experience. Indeed, it has even moved beyond the expectations of 2015’s ultimate video gaming device. It has moved into a realm of enormous commercial potential where savvy companies are utilising Virtual Reality in increasingly creative ways to deliver brand experience.  

Most recently we have seen Ebay and Myer partner to create the future of retail experience. The world’s first Virtual Reality store has been released, where viewers are able to explore various departments through a VR device. It unites the two traditionally competitive realms of location based and online shopping into one cohesive user-centric and innovative collaboration, paving the way for an entirely new customer directed approach. 

We’re all very excited to continue following the VR tidal wave as it sweeps across into 2017 with exciting new potentials rising to the surface. Watch this space!

Volvo LifePaint

LifePaint is a wearable product that helps to make cyclists more visible at night. Read more.

Insights
Volvo LifePaint

To promote how Volvo’s IntelliSafe system that protects both cyclists and pedestrians, they gave out special cans of spray paint in London bike shops.

Applying LifePaint on bikes or clothing makes them glow luminously when they’re in the path of a car’s headlights. LifePaint washes off, and will not damage the colour or the surface of your chosen material.

Volvo raised awareness of the product with a YouTube film, which has been watched more than 4.7 million times. It was reported that the cans were out of stock in 72 hours.

The reflective and street-like aesthetic of the paint gives the product some intrigue and credibility, which also possibly engaged a varied audience and raised awareness of road safety. A very successful and considered campaign!

Mesmerising Sci-fi Surrealism

We all love a good GIF, but these elaborate sci-fi inspired ones by digital artist and animator Carl Burton are beautifully cinematic and out of this world.  Read more.

Insights
Mesmerising Sci-fi Surrealism

NYC-based Burton's personal experiments really raises the bar when it comes to the humble GIF. 

The compositions are amazingly atmospheric and reminiscent of eerie alien worlds from science fiction blockbusters. There's something so arresting and hypnotic, that they really lure you into an out of this world meditative trance. 

Burton creates these artfully complex GIFs primarily with Cinema4D, Photoshop and After Effects. Clearly requiring a bit more effort and skills than our usual still-frame GIF variety. 

Head over to Burton's website to see the full breadth of his talent and his tumblr for more GIF-tastic creations.

Ink the line

With tattoos becoming more common and a fashionable expression these days, the aesthetic has evolved towards bespoke artistic stylisation. Read more.

Insights
Ink the line

 

 

Having no inks of my own, I am seriously tempted after seeing these illustrative linear artworks by Berlin-based artist Mo Ganji. 

Each work uses one simple black line, with no more than a few dots as textural embellishments. His illustration style would be perfect to adorn any living room walls, but is made even more unique as tattoo art. 

This is a great example of blurred lines between tattoo art and contemporary illustration. You no longer have to settle for a (potentially upside down) chinese character but actually own a piece of art as ink. 

For any tattoo lovers, check out his website and Instagram for more inspiration.

THERE Studio Outing

THERE tour outing as part of Art Month in Chippendale Read more.

Insights
THERE Studio Outing

Every few months the studio gathers for a THERE outing which gives us an opportunity to explore some local events.

 

This time it was arranged inline with a Chippendale art tour for Sydney Art Month. On the way we stopped by the aMBUSH Gallery which was definitely a highlight.

 The exhibition space is renowned for its contemporary urban art and was showcasing a selection of films, photographs, magazines, posters, audio, video and other artefacts for the Geniale Dilletanten show. The multi-media exhibition was curated by Goethe-Institut Australia and displayed material from the 1980s German punk and underground subculture.

 The tour then extended onto a number of Chippendale and Redfern galleries showcasing a range of young, contemporary artists and somehow the tour ended up in the local bars and restaurants ;)
