I recently visited Roast restaurant in Borough Market and spotted this beautiful art display in the bar. It consists of illuminated screens with silhouette images. There’s nothing unusual about that perhaps, until you notice that the images in the three larger screens move and change to reflect the different seasons.
My (not so great photo) shows the winter view, with the farmer looking out over a snowy landscape. The bottom right image is a pond which has frozen over, and in the top screen a bird flies past bare branches. When it changes to summer, the farmer sits nonchalantly against the oak tree and you can see Carp swim through the pond.
I love how this is so simple and engaging and actively supports Roast’s philosophy of sourcing well produced, seasonal British produce. What a great way to set the tone for the evening. Top marks to Digit London who designed it.
