Installation of Tubes for Festival Artwork
The Camden Create Festival started on 13 May 2014 and the multi-coloured, translucent plastic tubes supplied by DWP have been on display on the chandelier-type structure outside Camden Town Tube Station.
The UPVC tubes were delivered on schedule the day before the Festival opened and the installation took place during the night of 12-13 May to avoid disruption to this busy area of London.
The temporary 'artwork' looks very impressive with the weather playing its part in creating a colourful light show through the clear plastic tubes.
This is an unusual project for DWP because it is a deviation from its normal, day-to-day business of supplying plastic extrusions to the construction, transport and marine industries. It will be the first time that any of its plastic products will be assembled to a create an artwork on public display.
