A world of excitement and experiences at The Lexicon
The Lexicon town centre in Bracknell is a superb location to shop, eat and socialise. With shopping for everyone; the very best stores for everyone, a multiplex 12 screen cinema showing all the latest films and restaurants that offer cuisine for whatever delicacy is demanded, there’s something for the local and wider community.
Complementing the sensory experience
Following the success of the introduction eight sensory experiences to coincide with the opening of the Lexicon town centre in leafy Bracknell, the Centre management wanted to refresh the sensory experiences. It was decided to remove the Marble Run and replace it with a dynamic, over-sized wall mounted piano.
Still echoing to the same theme of the remaining sensory experiences, visitors, shoppers and excited local communities can now “Play the Forest Piano”.
Playing the Piano is a delightful addition to the existing installations at the heart of the Lexicon:
Sounds of the Forest; an audible experience that prompted the listener to the wildlife that can be found in nearby forests.
Day and Night; as a visitor walks past LEDs that illuminate to mimic the tracks the person is taking. A test of the imagination.
String Quartet; using an empty shop front, passersby are encouraged to make their own distinctive music using touchpads that echo to the sound of their chosen string instrument; violin, cello, double bass and guitar.
Light and Shadow; a game of concentration. Visitor uses their hand to track along a pre-determined route, can they reach the end through day and night experiences?
Poem Wall; listen as the “Encounter Forest Light” by Scott Farlow is recited. Visitors transported to a world of prose and classical writing.
The Scented Forest; a forest offers a cascade of vivid scents and smells. Utilise the pipe “forest” to smell individual scents. The visitor challenged to name what they have smelt.
Play the keys and enjoy this ActionWall. Gently tap away at the “black and whites” to make a sound reminiscent of walking through the famously idyllic Bracknell Forest.
