Dark materials: Project Nox
by Felicity Taylor

Thursday, 19 June 2014

On show at Central Saint Martins' Material Futures graduation show this week, Felicity Taylor's Project Nox explores the experience of darkness through touch, fragrance, sound and surface.

A series of material samples including charred wood, glittered surfaces, oily glazes, feathers, caviar-like beads and inky yarns are presented in the installation alongside smoky night-time scents.

The multi-sensory project invites participants to share in Taylor's "re-telling of the dark", considering a concept that can be at once mysterious, scary and magical.
