The Illuminarium is an art installation by Chloe Rodham and Tim Lozinski. It is an immersive exhibition of luminous sculptures and moving image exploring the life-cycle of moths.

During the production of the piece, we have documented the processes used. Follow the journey from concept to exhibition in the Sketchbook section of the website.

This event has now passed.


12 December: Closing Night Meet The Artists Talk at the Toffee Factory Newcastle.

Entry is free with a ticket. You can book one via Eventbrite here:


Chloe Rodham

thread and pins

Based in Northumberland, I have worked as an animator since graduating from the University of the Creative Arts (Farnham) in 2010. As a specialist in both stop motion and After Effects animation I work in a variety of digital and traditional techniques to create short films. I’ve developed a diverse and varied portfolio over the past five years, creating work for clients ranging from The Fourth Monkey Theatre Company to The Labour Party and music label ANTI. The Illuminarium is my first opportunity to display animation work in a gallery context alongside the models that have been used to create the artwork.

Living in Whitley Bay and working in Newcastle, I too graduated from the University of the Creative Arts in Farnham; though 10 years earlier in the year 2000.  My areas of work have been in both lens-based and digital interactive media . I spent several years teaching digital arts and media in FE and HE and I now run my own company. I enjoy working in Maya and Unity for 3D and Photoshop and Illustrator for 2D. I’m stretching myself now to work on the more “hands-on” side of this project. I enjoy tinkering with electronics and optics and so my modelling work on The Illuminarium will centre around those aspects of the piece.
