Dan Tobin Smith's sweeping color gradient installation

Dan Tobin Smith's sweeping color gradient installation in his London studio is a sight behold. he wanted to create a huge installation out of thousands of unwanted objects. The result, The First Law of Kipple, opens in a couple of weeks and some early images of it suggest he’s turned all that waste into something rather beautiful…

Tobin Smith has assembled the 200 square metre installation in his studio as part of London Design Festival 2014. It is made up of thousands of objects that he has collected and that have been donated by the public via the website CallForKipple.com.

The objects are arranged chromatically and have been laid out across the studio floor with such care that the colours blend into one another seamlessly: reds flow into browns, pinks and purples; sea greens into shades of turquoise and dark blue.

When it opens on September 13, visitors will be able to walk through the work via a series of pathways.
