Continuing my Open House London 2012 photos, this is Jason Bruges Studio’s ‘Pixel Cloud’, an art installation in the atrium of law firm Allen & Overy’s office building in Bishops Square. A 3d matrix of 624 polycarbonate globes which span eight storeys. Each 120mm globe is fitted with 24 LEDs and can be controlled independently allowing for light and colour changes. I managed to capture the colour change between yellow and cyan, the display is one of the most impressive things I have seen. The glass atrium reflects each globe, creating a a light galaxy. In a bid to include more of a human element into my architectural photography, you will spot Flickr buddy The Green Album at the bottom. Well I say bottom, but actually this walkway has a rather big drop either side. Have a great weekend!

Sands Films Studio in Rotherhithe has opened its doors to public for the Open House weekend. It feels like a labyrinth / museum but it is still fully functioning studio with great costume making facilities, a sound stage, small screening room and a massive pictures archive. They have 3 projects running at the moment and they seem to specialise in all costume dramas. Need to brush up on my Beatrix Potter and Little Dorrit…

A very magical place. A place of CRAFT!
