Rachel James and Location Inflation
Location Inflation specialising in inflatable design and was formed in 1996 by Rachel James. Currently Rachel is artist in residence at St Luke's Community Centre, EC1V where she has been introducing members of the local community to inflatable sculpture.
Rachel completed a BA (hons) in Fine Art at Cardiff University of Wales. After leaving college she was prompted to create inflatable work when faced with storage solutions for welded and forged sculptures.
As a consequence of her inflatable exploration came the development of Location Inflation and a colourful array of lively commissions for clients in varied professions. This includes design for theatre, window displays, commercials, costumes, educational projects and décor. These projects continue to push the boundaries of her skills and knowledge, with each commission presenting a different challenge.
