Tomorrow, Thursday 16 August, Craig Winslow is bringing his Light Capsules project back to London for a ‘one night only’ special reboot of the 100-year-old Barlow & Roberts ghost sign at 25-33 Southwark Street (under the railway arch). As darkness falls the sign will come back to life through a series of illuminations showing how it once looked in all its glory. The event is completely free, and part of much more happening within the Letterheads 2018: London Calling event.
The above video is from the series of five installations that we collaborated on for the 2016 London Design Festival. To learn more about the history of the Barlow & Roberts sign, download the free Bankside Ghostsigns Walk via the mobile app.
