Ascenda - Martin Richman

Ascenda - Martin Richman

Ascenda was commissioned by Marks and Spencer.

The work, which takes the form of a light ladder, is 6.5 metres tall and was conceived as a complement to the minimal style of architecture featured in the original building designed by John Pawson.

The lightwork has illuminated glass rungs that are clear within their face, but are etched within their lower and upper edges. The artwork and the light emitted, changes when viewed from different angles.
Funded by Marks & Spencer.
