Ephemeral light installation
Ajuntament de Barcelona
15 - 17 de February, 2019
It’s an ephemeral installation that traces a tridimensional visual trail in a map, using laser light as a guide for visitors of the multiple installations at Llum BCN 2019.
Làser is an ephemeral installation that traces through light,
a tridimensional track over the streets in Barcelona.
It was born in the wake of and rising speculation of new ways of urban illumination. What if our streets have no lamps anymore, and instead there is a single straight light line that illuminates and even draws visually the way the city is organised? As well as knowing how disruptive or not can it be for people, and even contemplating it as new ways of usign traffic lights. For us was bringing into life a common imaginary place of a futuristic urban vision by using the laser, and open the door to try and imagine how will it look in other cities.
Within the framework of the festival we used 7 cranes in order to install 2 long distance laser equipments, and 5 mirrors, this helped us to make it work as a guide for the visitants, and even explore the capacity of the laser range while projecting it into the sky.
Installed in the streets: Badajoz, Sancho d’Àvila and Pere IV
