Designs in Air at The Mills
Seek the Spooky Sea Monsters
In a feat of Conservation & Imagination
Long committed to promoting a fun culture of innovation and learning, The Mills joins hands with British inflatable design group Designs in Air to transform the property into a magical marine wonderland, featuring spooky inflatable monsters and their terrifying tentacles. Visitors young and old, it’s time to dive in!
Inflatable Installation Duo Just “Wants to Have Fun”
Designs in Air was founded by the talented Pete Hamilton, a textile-based artist fascinated with geometrical shapes, and Luke Egan, a mixed-media sculptor, both with their artistic roots planted in the UK festival culture and together as urban explorers, driven by wild imaginations and desire to change the world through art. The artists met in an open plan workshop and since 1996, they have since created countless inflatable installations, all of which are pieces that marry art with technology through imagination, meticulous calculations, textile design, lighting, interactive sensors, dynamics, installation techniques and outrageous jokes and concepts, beauty of form and much, much more.
In 2004, the duo was inspired by the new International Street Art Movement and wanted to “have some fun” with their talents via their aliases, Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas. The often humorous series of urban installations greatly widened their audience and the duo garnered international recognition, including being featured in the 2012 London Summer Olympics, The Eden Project in Cornwall, UK that celebrates plants and the natural world; Cirque du Soleil, Fuji Rock festival in Japan and Lollapalooza in the US, to name but a few.
In their latest partnership with The Mills, Pete and Luke have brought their favourite Inflatable Tentacles — for them a symbol of conservation and the victorious sustenance of nature.
