Curiousity Cloud, London Design Festival 2015 - Mischer Traxler

As part of our 'small Discoveries' series for Perrier-Jouët, we are extremely happy that we got the opportunity to develop a new kinetic installation that will be on show at the V&A during London Design Week. This time hand-made insects will react to the audience. "Curiosity Cloud is about celebrating a moment in nature and the relationship that humans have with the entomological world." The installation comprises 250 mouth-blown glass globes made by the Viennese glass company Lobmeyr. Each globe contains a single hand-fabricated insect and each insect has been printed onto foil, which has been laser cut and then hand embroidered to create the body. Capturing the full range of human engagement with this natural order, 25 insect species are represented, falling into three categories: extinct, common, and newly discovered." - misher traxler
