An Immersive Bubble Installation has Landed at Greenwich Peninsula this Winter

Amongst the city’s Christmas trees and festive lights, Greenwich Peninsula has welcomed a different kind of winter installation

London is known for its impressive Christmastime displays, with stunning lights strung up across the city’s neighbourhoods. Greenwich Peninsula is one such neighbourhood, only this year it’s putting a twist on the traditional with an epic bubble installation stretching across Peninsula Square and Design District

Bubbles of Serenity, created by interdisciplinary designer and digital artist Lucy Hardcastle (who’s worked with the likes of the V&A, Chanel and London Design Festival), comprises large-scale LED screens, light projections and an augmented reality social media filter, and provides a moment of wonder amidst the festive madness. Check out the otherworldly figures in her digital-natural utopia, watch bubbles morph from clear to crystalline as they interact with the architecture of NOW Gallery and Design District, and download the AR Bubble Filter from the QR codes to take the perfect selfie inside a bubble wonderland.

And if you love Lucy’s work, you won’t want to miss her event with London-based collective Baesianz on 13th December for Spotlight on Digital Design, which explores digital design from an Asian perspective with workshops and panel talks featuring CGI artist Natalie Liu, moving image artist Zaiba Jabbar, and filmmaker and musician Lawrence Lek. Get tickets for that here.

Once you’ve experienced the Bubbles of Serenity, there’s plenty more winter fun to get stuck into at Greenwich Peninsula, including festive food and drink at Canteen Food Hall & Bar and Bureau Restaurant; wreath making, pottery and painting workshops; and gift shopping from artisanal and independent makers at Greenwich Peninsula Market. And all of that is accessible by tube, Uber Boat and IFS Cloud Cable Car, so you can turn your trip to see the bubbles into a big Christmas day out.
