2016 / 17 Eleanor Connolly

Royal College of Art, London.

Eleanor was named joint winner of the fourth annual Jonathan Speirs Scholarship in 2016/17.

Her passion for light stems from the belief that unique conditions of light are responsible for how we engage and experience our surroundings. Her post-graduate work explores the idea of colour perception as a consequence of light reacting to surface formation and shifts in observation. Most recently she has designed a theoretical museum in which Exhibition Road, South Kensington becomes itself the exhibit. Visitors following the trajectory of the street dwell in zones of curated light – both natural and artificial – that create a ‘flow experience’, revealing colour through architectural structure, façade materiality and lighting design.
