WIGGLE WONDERLAND – Lucy Grainge & Beau McCarthy

Beau McCarthy is an architectural designer from London, working across a multitude of 3D and 2D design practices. Beau’s interests lay within the public realm and temporal spaces, he aims to bring joy and celebration into the built environment, with a focus on sustainable builds. Lucy Grainge is an artist and designer from Manchester. She is interested in community centred and collaborative practices which enable social change. Her work visually explores the potential of colour, shape and pattern as a tool for communication. She is co-creator of Psyche Publication.

The Wiggle Wonderland is an evolving pavilion, which will be launched at Brainchild and then tour communities within the UK. It is a modular, playable space that invites people to activate it through movable elements and changeable artwork. It is part of a wider research project which explores sustainable and collaborative design activated by communities. Within the first instalment at Brainchild, the artwork created by Lucy celebrates moving and wiggling your body again.

The project is funded by Arts Council England National Lottery fund and with support from Champion Timber and Brainchild.
