To create our trails we work with international and UK-based, award-winning artists from across a range of different media, including lighting, sculpture, fire, and landscaping.
Large, colorful crystals seem to have formed randomly on the branches of the trees.
By day, the dichroic material reflects the sun in a thousand colors and casts coloured shadows on the branches and ground.
At night, the crystals light up as if animated by a glow of their own, creating a magical atmosphere.
The mushrooms slowly transition through several colours whilst the mycelium strobes and pulses and almost looks as if its moving around and sending messages around like the human bodies nervous system.
A field of 22 flowers beautiful at day and night time. Each up to 3.5m in height and made from 3D steel covered with UV and with small LED bulb spheres placed in the crown of the flowers to create stamen like elements, that have a special glow and animated sparkly effect.
The Papyrus stretches out its white leaves in the sun, throwing delicate and thin shadows around. At night its leaves starting blowing a bright warm light and vibrant colours lighten up its stems and leaves in sequences.
A place where physics meets art and art meets fun. Using the principles of the primary colours of light and additive colour mixing, we create a lighting world that appears neutral until you enter - and then your shadows are fractured into magical colours.
The Japanese expression for "dappled light through the leaves" this installation plays with light and sound to create a festive pathway of dappled light. The music for this installation was composed by Kate O'Hanlon.
These majestic trees needed a majestic lighting treatment. By rigging the lights way up high we are able to highlight just how magnificent these redwoods are. This son et lumiere experience celebrates our love of holidays and festive cheer.
Around a hundred candles seemingly float in the air, suspended overhead. Flickering flames illuminate the tree-lined passageway and immerse the audience in a magical, festive atmosphere.
Fire Dancers is inspired by Christmas table-top chimes and happy memories of celebratory gatherings. The installation symbolises joyful expression, human unity and gentle optimism.
‘Flow’ is a series of explorations using dynamically controlled points of light within physical space to visualise the flow of energy, data and artefacts; real and imagined, as suggested by the landscape itself.
A series of six fluorescent, geometric sculptures, lit with ultra violet light. They depict endangered mammals, emerging from the undergrowth, highlighting the plight of these magnificent creatures.
One of the longest light tunnels to ever feature at Christmas at Kew, this 75m long, multi-coloured tunnel will illuminate the path, fully immersing visitors as they wander through.
