Lightwaves Salford





By Axolotl

Commissioned by Light Up the North as part of the SHINE Emerging Artist Programme.

Polyrhythms is where light, sound, and rhythm come together in perfect harmony.

A percussive soundtrack interacts with mesmerising glowing patterns of light chasing round large concentric polygon structures representing various polyrhythmic beats.

Polyrhythms fuses the visual language of light art with music theory to create a fascinating sculptural piece, inviting the audience to both enjoy it as a captivating visual but also to explore the underlying concept that inspired it.

Manchester based Axolotl are Chris Ball, George Babington and Richard Babington. Their goal is to create captivating art that not only entertains but also encourages exploration of the underlying ideas that inspired it, bringing those concepts to life through light. Axolotl hopes to encourage education and inspiration across STEAM fields, all while crafting work that is both innovative and strikingly beautiful.
