Further info:


This is the first version of 'Souvenir' to be shown in the UK. Two forms were built using bright orange umbrellas, to accentuate the existing colours on the site. Built to accompany a conference on the Art of Destination - art and landscape. All the core components were redesigned from the original Shanghai installation to enable them to be modular and more robust for the exposed landscape environment.
