Despite being nearly midway through April, it’s still a bit gloomy and cold. So if you’re like me and pining for ‘proper’ spring to kick in, why not lift your spirits at the latest exhibition at the Now Gallery. Harmonics In Space by Fred Butler launched on 28 February and will be cheering up Londoners until the end of April. Butler has created a multi-layered, sensory immersive experience in the small gallery in North Greenwich. The space has been transformed with different textures and colours as spinning and static shapes catch the eye. Butler has conceived the exhibition as a wellness experience, giving visitors the space to breathe and feel. Guests are asked to take their shoes off before stepping into the display, which features a mixture of soft and hard flooring. You are offered the chance to borrow some headphones during the experience featuring relaxing sonic music by Natureboy. During my visit, I spent most of it lying back against a foam triangle, listening to the soothing music and gazing at the moving shapes and lights around me. You also have the chance to make origami while inside. I had spent the hours prior to my visit in the bustling and noisy markets of East London so it was the perfect antidote. It was incredibly calming and relaxing and really did lift my spirits.It’s only on for a few more weeks, so I’d recommend checking out it you can.
