Critically acclaimed British artist Mileece will launch the pilot of her new mobile installation, PiP's Plant Parlour, on London's Bankside as part of Blackfriars Stories, which celebrates the history and character of the area to the south of Blackfriars Bridge.
PiP's Plant Parlour is an interactive, travelling plant-lounge designed for the urban environment, where visitors can restore their sense of wellbeing by interacting and relaxing in an immersive bio-responsive sound and lightscape, surrounded by delicate flowers and lush plants.
The installation is supported by Southwark Council and Missen Acoustic and produced by not-for-profit arts organisation Illuminate Productions. This first iteration of the Parlour will be developed further, in the Feel-Good Experience, a large-scale visionary project planned for the spring of 2020 in London.
Housed within a converted vintage caravan, the Parlour will be open for drop-ins, or available to visitors to book exclusive 15-minute sessions. There they will be invited to interact with the plants to create unique natural and electronic soundscapes and to relax in the multi-sensory cocoon.
