AMALIA PICA | PRINCE OF WALES DRIVE

PERMANENT INSTALLATION SINCE 2018
PRINCE OF WALES DRIVE, LONDON

Digitally printed ceramic tiles, text, and public commission at Prince of Wales Drive.
Two 30-meter walls in Prince of Wales Drive only a few meters from Battersea Park in London. The work examines the microscopic life of the park. It was printed on ceramic tiles, taking advantage of a new printing technology that delivers digital imagery in ceramic pigments. To create this design, I worked from park samples collected with microbiologist Joanne Santini from UCL, employing diverse microscopic imaging technologies. This work was designed to improve the appearance of an existing railway arch, and so my design for these walls responds to and works within the existing architecture. The images are accompanied by texts and fun facts about the microscopic life in the park.
