For the past year RONE has been working in secret on an installation inside the Burnham Beeches mansion and now has come the time to invite you all to see EMPIRE.
This work is well beyond what he has created in the past. RONE has once again teamed up with interior stylist @cjspooner across 12 of the estate’s otherwise empty spaces.
Complementing Spooner’s film set-like styling is a series of stunning botanical installations by design studio @looseleaf__ that reference each season and reflect the perpetual life and death cycles of nature and the estate’s surrounding gardens.
Elsewhere, bespoke scent design by Kat Snowden (@cleanslateskincare), lighting design by John McKissock,
and stirring multi-channel sound design from composer @nickbatterham
Part exhibition, part installation, part VR @lesterfrancois and AR @phoria.io experience, Empire combines art, vision, sound, light, botanical design and scent to take audiences on a hauntingly immersive multi-sensory journey into a reimagined past of a faded icon. #empirerone
