Inspired by the apparently gyrating light sphere that sits on top of the English National Opera building in London, known as the coliseum an installation piece by the same name, created by Ron Haselden was a remarkable piece of work shown in 1989 at the showroom Gallery in London.
Light emitting diodes were wired around the spherical shape in the centre, which appeared to rotate as the LED units flickered on and off. The room, framed by similar devices, lost its architectural shape and appeared to expand and contract with each light pulse.
Does anyone know anything more about Ron Haselden, as I have tried in vain to come up with more information on his work ?
Any help here is much appreciated.
