To coincide with London Fashion Week, Rupert Newman will be creating  a series of  multi-sensory

installation pieces exploring the interaction between the static and the projected image at The Hospital Club in

London. Curated by Aretha Campbell this show aims to engage and inspire people on many levels, through

print, animation, and touch thus challenging the viewer's visual perception with the manipulation of light. By

fusing digital display with physical textures, Rupert's work aims to interfere with what is virtual and what is

real. 

This exhibition will showcase a new concept, where specially designed light effects are mapped and then

projected in accordance with a static image. Newman’s work seeks to continually challenge the boundaries of

print and light projections placing the notion of art as an immersive experience at its heart.

These site-specific instillations are inspired by the Russian Rayonists, the Constructivists and Suprematists

whose primary concern cowas to paint light and create space within composition. Rupert's work is derived

from the ideology of Robert Delaunay that ...”what is of great importance to me is observation of the

movement of colours.” 

Since graduating from the Royal college in 2010,  Rupert Newman has worked for numerous clients

combining light and textile design including Dom Perignon, TextPrint (alongside Stella McCartney), Diane

Von Furstenberg, The Royal Society of Arts, Brunswick House, GAP, Mambo and the Secret Garden Party.

His work has been published in Martin Drawber's New Fashion Print (Batsford), Simon Clarke's Textile

Design (Laurence King) and Sarah Braddock's Digital Vision (Thames & Hudson). 

THE HOSPITAL CLUB is a unique hub in the heart of London offering the creative community the

environment and facilities to create, connect and collaborate. As part of London’s creative community its role

is to discover and feed the best creative talent, and produce, publish and celebrate their work.  It is a real-

world Club but also an on-online community for the Creative Industries and is set up to inspire, entertain,

support and nurture creative talent.
