Artist creates a geometric rave in a chapel for The House of St Barnabus

Alongside Rupert Newman's exhibition - Abstract Geometry - at the Rook & Raven gallery in London, the artist is projecting his visual patterns onto the chapel at The House of St Barnabus to create an installation called Altered Perspectives.

You can watch a video of Altered Perspectives above.

The swirling, rave-like patterns of multicoloured prisms are projected onto the smooth curved stonework and religious iconography of the chapel, creating an intriguing contrast. The installation, which runs from December 10-11, isn't going to interrupt any religious activity as the chapel is within The House of St Barnabus, a Soho private members club and charity. Some of Rupert's prints are on show around the club too.

Non-members can go an check it out between 6 and 8pm on those days.

The installation is accompanied by sound designed by Sarah Wayne, which reference both choral works and sci-fi sound effects.

Alterned Perspectives - like the Abstract Geometry exhibition it coincides with - is inspired by the Fibonacci Sequence, a mathematical sequence of ever growing numbers that can be seen both within the natural world and in art. For example, the relationship between the numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence is similar to the Golden Ratio that drives artistic frameworks such as the Golden Section and Golden Spiral.

Rupert graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010, and since then has created pieces for the likes of Warner Music Group, Dom Perignon, Battersea Power Station, Burning Man Festival, and The Royal Society of Arts.
