Como Tempio Voltiano installazione di 8208 Light Design Festival

WAVES | Intro

WAVES is a dynamic light installation especially designed and to be produced for the 8208 Lighting Design Festival in Como. It stretched all over the monumental axis in Tempio Voltiano park from the crossing to the museum.

WAVES | Concept

WAVES mystically shows an image of tension that refers to Alessandro Volta’s electrical inventions.
It’s the wind that puts WAVES into motion. And the sun that powers the full installation.
With is crisp stored power popping up in the buzzing lit lines.
Power is condensed in this lightfield: the power of the elemtens of water, wind and sun, the power of light in the dark and the power of imagination.

WAVES | Result

WAVES consists of an overwhelming amount of sparkling solar powered light strings, horizontally tied to the low fences across the middle grass area’s. Some more to the right, some more to the left and others in the middle.When visitors approach the axis, they will see all these lines blinking.
A striking image. Looking like the WAVES of Lake Como flow right into the park at night.The moon reflecting at her tops.
Visitors walk around the installation and can cross in the pathway.With the fluid lightfield at your knee’s height, it feels like the park has flooded. As theathical basin has been created, and your right in the middle of this force.
Spectators see you, and your looking at them, holding up against the WAVES.
