Event description

Description

Join an intimate group to walk around the VOID installation space with renowned gemologist and jewellery specialist Joanna Hardy and VOID designer Dan Tobin Smith.

Learn how the gems are sourced and what attributes makes them unique. Whilst Dan Tobin Smith discusses his passion for inclusions and explains the process of filming and projecting the gems within the installation VOID.

VOID is a multi-sensory spatial installation at Collins Music Hall, Islington, as part of London Design Festival 2019. Created by Designer Dan Tobin Smith and creative studio The Experience Machine, in partnership with Gemfields.

Visitors will become part of an immersive experience, travelling through a series of large-scale projections that showcase the expanded space inside gemstones and map the blurring boundaries between nature and design.

A selection of Mozambican rubies and Zambian emeralds from Gemfields’ mines, which date back millions of years, are brought to life through photography of tiny microcosms magnified to become abstract, galaxy-like structures. Accompanied by other semi-precious gems created in rare geological processes, these unique mineral formations are discovered, suspended and frozen in time.
