House Of Pain
An interactive light sculpture housed in a derelict dental school in Borough High Street, London.
The public were invited to have a cathartic yell or scream inside the building.
The unique quality of each scream created the colour and movement of the light composition, illuminating the entire building.
House of Pain was open to the public from the 19th September until the 21st October 2013. An estimated 4000 people participated, mostly of them passers-by, local residents and workers. A total of 50 hours of screaming were recorded during the run.
