London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE
Located on the ground floor of the London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE showcases a series of contemporary art commissions responding, and bringing fresh perspectives, to the site’s rich archaeological history.
London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE latest commission is Albion Waves by British artist Oliver Beer.
Beer’s new installation Albion Waves, draws inspiration from the 14,000 Roman artefacts discovered on the Bloomberg site, and features a constellation of 28 suspended historic British vessels. Dating from the second century to the present day, each vessel varies in colour, form, size, and origin, and contains a microphone to amplify its acoustic resonance. Triggered when motion sensors detect the movement of visitors, the installation can be played by the viewer, their interactions evolving into a unique immersive musical experience.
