Spotlight Festival - Art Installations








What if the entire facade of the Novotel Hotel turns into an optical illusion? Let yourself amazed by the grace of the simple, repetitive graphic elements that manage to change the perception of the building’ shape. This interactive video mapping allows the participants to express their creativity in real time. Using two midi controllers, one can produce and modify the visual images projected on the facade of the building, as well as change the colours, the shapes and also create audio effects and make diverse elements move.

Designed initially for a university project, this 60 meters long Dutch installation is a challenge for the senses. Step into a world of ever changing colours, where patterns screened on the floor completely redefine the surrounding space.

Watch out for the 12 meters inflatable giant. Made of bright light that shines in the night, this huge creature sets out to explore a new world. Designed to spread the message that our planet is a truly fantastic wonderland, the installation takes after the 1973 science fiction movie with the same title. Whoever visits the Fantastic Planet is transported into a wild universe, populated with numerous giants and a few humans. Don’t let the size of the creatures keep you away, let curiosity prevail and you won’t regret it!

We, the humans, think of ourselves as the most powerful creatures roaming the face of Earth.
The HoloFace tries to challenge this feeling of self-importance and lets you control the face of a god of light. Huge in size and presence.
From this change of perspective one should become aware that the way we relate with the smaller, apparently less important things around us, is the way the higher things relate to us.

A 13 meters wide urban mirage. While the light sculpture gradually displays all its details. Pe măsură ce ansamblul își dezvăluie toate detaliile, atenția trecătorilor este provocată să observe noi perspective. Privește cât mai mult instalația, pentru a experimenta efectul relaxant al unei stări de spirit cu adevărat speciale.

Hikarinoki is the tree made out entirely of green recyclable materials that contracts anyone around with a good mood. The installation made its debut at Lyon Light Festival in 2009 and is famous for transforming its surroundings with bright lights. A symbol of life, Hikarinoki is the link between earth and sky, a place where different worlds meet. The friendly lightning tree works as a great attraction and meeting point, a place where passengers stop and get intoxicated with smiles.

Spectacular is not an adequate word to describe these phenomena, but it is the best I can do at the moment.

Super imagination and innovation + super technical work = super displays .... plus, super photography to reveal it.
