Pulp

“… It is a multiplicity of ideas, facts and observations that seem to best describe our perception of the city. Brighton is multifaceted, energetic, Pythonesque. Polyphon is our representation of this research.”


Pulp

Pulp was a large-scale installation in paper, which captured the turnover and energy of summer in the city.

Brighton in the summer: 500 hours of expected sunshine; 4.5 million visitors; 10 million cups of tea and 2 million portions of chips. As the rhythm of the city picked up, the wastepaper baskets filled and the daily tide of visitors ebbed and flowed, Artstation created a giant inflated paper sculpture in Fabrica space. Using cutting edge computer technology, a kilometre of recycled paper and a team of volunteers, Glenn Davidson and Anne Hayes have transformed Fabrica with their spectacular new piece. The final work, Polyphon – a creature made of 58 separate paper sections joined together with gum strip – was produced on site in 2 and half weeks.

A superb and a very impressive feast of engineering, science and art!

… Enjoyed the way it was impossible to look at its complete shape at any one time…

It makes me want to rip it up!
