Submergence for Caviar House Heathrow

“Submergence” is a bespoke video sculpture commissioned by Caviar House and Prunier for their new location at Heathrow Terminal 5.

Submergence can be interpreted in a number of ways; from a shoal of fish to a fantasy embellishment of a section of coral, the piece encapsulates underwater themes in a creative approach. This inspiration draws parallels with Emergence, enforcing a strong identity with the brand.

The artwork evolves throughout the day in it’s material, colour, lighting environment and events. During morning hours, a rich gold material implies a dawn sunrise. Daytime reveals a silver, chrome appearance with a warm and cool tones. In the evening hours a tactile dark satin finish with cool blue and purple hues sees the piece through to the final hours of the terminal’s operations. Within these evolutions lie a series of events that are inspired by sub-aquatic life. From golden rising bubbles, to shoals of light trails that spiral around the form. These transient moments occur throughout the day with more dramatic gestures occurring on the hour.

The video sculpture is a part of a growing collection of sculptural interventions that Cinimod Studio has realised within the UK airport terminals of Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. Rising 6 metres in height and almost 2.5 metres in width, Cinimod have continued their journey of introducing innovative installations that provide retailers a stronger presence within a highly competitive environment.
