A new edition of Barcelona’s light art festival, Llum BCN, will once again illuminate the streets of the Poblenou neighbourhood with different installations, such as that of artist Richard Vijgen. Since 2012, the festival has revolutionised the nighttime views of the city with dozens of art proposals by the best creators of light, film and digital technology art from around the world. For three nights, on 3, 4 and 5 February, you will be able to enjoy the magic of light that transforms the urban landscape of Barcelona. A programme that combines innovation, creativity and technology. What more could you want?
The outer skin of Torre Glòries is transformed with the light of Barcelona
Torre Glòries is one of the emblematic buildings that take part in the festival of light art. Nothing less could be expected of this icon of the Catalan capital’s skyline. The building has two layers made of different materials: the first is of aluminium, painted in 26 different colours and the second is of glass, evoking water full of light.
The skyscraper is like a geyser that rises from the ground and reaches the sky with its glass dome. It is the perfect canvas for revealing the life of Barcelona in real time.
Artist Richard Vijgen’s projection in real time
Richard Vijgen is the creator of a piece that will be projected onto the facade of Torre Glòries. Using big data and in real time, the artist will present the beat of Barcelona on the outer skin of the building. He is also the author of the Rhythms installation in Hyperview Barcelona, which, on a holographic screen, shows the city as a being full of life.
The projection gathers data in real time and will therefore be different each time you see it. This is an innovative experience that uses technology to bring us closer than ever to the systems that comprise the life of Barcelona.
