LDF10: Gust Of Wind

Late Friday night at the V&A was fantastic. It was packed with enthusiasts and so many amazing things to see. My favourite was of course the long awaited installation by Paul Cocksedge, 'Gust of Wind'. Flying sheets of corian were installed as if they were fluttering across the hallway at the V&A. The installation featured 300 curvacious pieces of corian with each engraved with the words: 'ideas tray' and featuring a series number. All this was for one night only so I am very glad I was part of it.

Each of these limited edition pieces are handmade by Cocksedge. The ‘pages’, which were given away during the event and I made sure to get my piece, represent a stack of paper which has been blown into the air by a gust of wind. They will function as paper trays, becoming a place for wandering paper to gather. 

Well as for me it will simply be a cool object amongst my many to decorate my home
