West London based Denny Plastics have recently made the most of the full Perspex® acrylic colour spectrum in a project, called In Perpetuity, for Irish artist Lucy McKenna. Many Perspex® shapes were laser cut for the project, which once installed came together to produce an 18 metre long piece wrapped around 5 walls.
Originally installed with vinyl in 2017, the updated commission makes use of laser cut Perspex® acrylic to create a dramatic 3D design. Approved fabricators Denny Plastics were chosen for their huge knowledge of the Perspex® acrylic range. They were able to advise on the use of Perspex® colours, live edge fluorescents, and the discreet vario range to create the dramatic wash of overlapping colour throughout the building.
Lucy McKenna is a multidiscipline artist working in drawing, photography, film, installation, audio and sculptural works. Describing this recommissioned work she explains “this new incarnation of In Perpetuity visualises a hypothetical language for communication beyond our civilisation. Imagining a language that has the capability to self-assemble when observed by a consciousness different to our own, this artwork is a vehicle for the transference of information using colour and lightwaves over vast distances. The individual pieces when combined together form an alphabet where meaning and interpretation is at the user's discretion.”
