The Festival of Illuminated Arts, Llum BCN 2024, is about to dazzle Barcelona, and this year, the Mirador torre Glòries becomes the epicenter of a unique experience thanks to the visionary Swiss-Italian artist Elisa Storelli.
In an unprecedented show, Elisa Storelli will present her work “Mira el Sol” during the weekend of February 2nd to 4th. This installation will project the time on Mars in real-time on the facade of the Torre Glòries, taking visitors on an interplanetary journey through the visual representation of the sun on the red planet.
After the resounding success of the previous edition, which attracted over 220,000 visitors, the Mirador torre Glòries positions itself once again as a must-visit landmark thanks to the collaboration with Elisa Storelli. Her work, ‘Mira el Sol,’ not only offers a stunning spectacle but also invites viewers to reflect on the connection between urban and planetary ecosystems, promoting a conscious and responsible look towards our environment.
Time in space: A cosmic experience in the heart of Barcelona
Mars has its own temporal mysteries, and ‘Mira el Sol’ allows us to explore them. With a day duration similar to Earth but with unique subtleties, the shadow projected on the Torre Glòries will change according to the sun’s location on Mars. A poetic reminder of the complexities of time, Storelli’s installation transforms the Torre Glòries into an observatory and beacon of the city, offering unique perspectives of urban transformation and the red planet, both revolving around the same sun.
