paul cocksedge studio has been commissioned by the uk’s largest charity, the wellcome trust, to produce a display that will illuminate their former headquarters on london’s euston road. the display is of arms stretching across the full length of the building featuring a special electronic lighting material. this material can change from transparent to opaque at the flick of the switch revealing neon tube veins inside. the unique properties of this can be seen in a video on the studio’s website. the commission was conceived of to attract attention to the building which has newly become a public space aimed at exploring the relationship between medicine, life, art and history.
