Light installation at the Barbican

More than 300 free-poured aluminium pieces and glowing orbs are suspended above and within the Lightwell at the Barbican, the results of a week of careful assembly work by specialist engineers, and captured by specialist film makers Construct Films.

Omer Arbel's '44' will remain at the Barbican until April, but for now it's a fitting centrepiece for London Design Week.

Arbel's studio Bocci commissioned us to document how this sprawling sculpture came to be. Our talented photographer Dave Hackney captured the detailed work in video and time-lapse, and was able to retain a sense of the activity by layering dozens of clips of sound recorded on-site.
