Our 2015 MPavilion opened on Monday! In no less than 34-degree heat. Before Victoria and Albert Museum director Martin Roth’s official opening at 10.30am—and before the mercury soared too high—we invited some amazing grammers to join us for an MPreview. They walked, talked and Instagrammed in and around our digital forest, seeking out unique vantage points, creating abstract shapes, discovering dreamy shadow-play—and even meeting some tiny, buzzing visitors. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and especially to Lou Hubbard and her students from VCA’s School of Visual Art who took the morning off to get involved.

Browse our gallery of their MPreview photos and videos below, and check out the #mpreview hashtag, or our Instagram, for more. Happy viewing!

Ruben Bull-Milne started his MPreview snapping from beneath the canopy.

… while Tori Lill pointed her phone’s lens at the (unusually hot) October sun’s shadow-play on the (ill-prepared) October grass.

We agree, Limedrop. Thanks for posting this dazzling MPreview pic.

Ruben ran off to the golf cour—no, wait, it’s one of MPavilion’s carbon-fibre poles in the midst of petal shadows.

For her final shot, Lauren went hunting for detail—and found it on the carbon-fibre poles that support MPavilion’s digital canopy.
