LONDON (Reuters) – London may not be known for great weather, but the artists known as Kimchi and Chips are hoping for sun for their latest installation – a suspended halo shape created with mirrors, mist and natural light.

In the fountain-lined courtyard of London’s Somerset House, “Kimchi and Chips: Halo” is made up of two four-meter (13-ft) high towers and a 15-metre-long track bearing 100 motorized mirrors tracking the sun’s movement, and water jets.

Seoul-based artists Mimi Son and Elliot Woods say the mirrors and mist will reflect the sun’s rays, creating a halo shape in the air.

“The work is supposed to collaborate with that anticipation of sunshine … (It) brings together different natural elements to create this drawing that will hang inside the air,” Woods told Reuters in an interview.

“Using light from the sun and a set of robotic mirrors, we’re able to create beams of light in the air and we catch those in a mist of water … and each one of those beams becomes a line in that mist and together they’ll form a single circle.”

The work is part of Kimchi and Chips’ “Drawing in the Air” project.
