Camille Walala has today unveiled her most interactive work to date at Coal Drops Yard in London's Kings Cross to introduce the entirely new 2D tile play concept from LEGO.
Called LEGO DOTS, Walala was invited to bring them to life in a free public art installation that celebrates their shared values of creativity, self-expression and accessibility, expressed through the vibrant colours and bold geometric patterns of both the new product and her own signature work.
The result is HOUSE OF DOTS, a fantastical house comprising five rooms spread over eight shipping containers, in which everything from the walls and floors to the rugs, frames and furniture has been customised in a mashup of the new toy range and Walala's distinctive patterns and colours.
Playful and immersive, HOUSE OF DOTS invites us to journey through a living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and finally a unique DOTS DISCO room with a custom playlist from Ele Beattie. While you explore the space, you are encouraged to get involved by designing your own patterns and bracelets – and even take elements away with you ahead of the release of LEGO DOTS in March.
If that wasn't enough, you can exit via an eight-foot slide down the side of the installation. Where do we sign up?
Speaking of the project, Walala said: "It's a joy to create a fun space where kids and adults can spontaneously express their creativity, make something beautiful and show off who they are. It captures all the exuberance and playfulness that people know me for, with something extra special: the chance to let your imagination go wild and create your own work of art. Oh, and a slide."
HOUSE OF DOTS will remain at Coal Drops Yard from today until 2 February 2020. Find out more here. Kids under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
