Bond in Motion is the official exhibition of James Bond vehicles that
feature in the renowned film series. It is the largest display of its
kind ever staged in London. These creative action vehicles play a pivotal role in all 23 movies and
continue to propel James Bond to the cutting-edge of cinematic
espionage. There are no replicas - every vehicle exhibited is an
original used for filming.
Certain types of flowers close at night, for self-defense and to
conserve their resources. This highly evolved natural mechanism is
called nyctinasty, and inspired Studio Drift to create Shylight, a light
sculpture that unfolds and retreats in a fascinating choreography
mirroring that of real flowers.
Traditional wood-bending techniques require complex steaming equipment,
labour-intensive forming processes, and a high degree of expertise. In
addition, the natural pattern of wood grain and its physical properties
make it difficult to curve into complex shapes. Novel printing and
composite material technologies can now overcome prior limitations of
wood forming. Flat sheets of custom printed wood composite can be
designed to self-transform in controlled and unique ways.
