IICON by Block9 Digital
IICON by Block9 Digital a is a research and development project funded by Join the Docks and the Royal Docks team. As part of this R&D project, Block9 are working on the next stage of their IICON project, bringing their immense sculptural artwork, architectural intervention and immersive music project to life in an online three dimensional interactive environment.
Block9 is led by Gideon Berger and Stephen Gallagher and explores the space where art, music, theatre and politics collide, often through the construction of complete, immersive temporary realities. The first part of the IICON project first debuted at Glastonbury in 2019 as a new outdoor arena that also acted as an immersive audio-visual experience, with a huge sculptural element mixed with heart-pounding futuristic dance music.
For your visit
It's easy to miss Lyle Park's narrow entrance, but its triangle of green with a river view is worth exploring.
