Like Turtles – Artec Studio (& Protopixel)

Light-art

Break free from plastic

‘Like Turtles’ seeks to raise awareness of the importance of not using or producing plastic bags and to promote that those already in circulation do not pollute the seas. This fact generates big inconveniences for the natural environment and the living beings that live from it, such as the problem of turtles that eat plastic waste mistaking them with jellyfish.

The installation captivates us with the soft dynamism and sound of the fluid mantra of 230 bags, each one illuminated by a floating point of light above us. The installation attracts us in the same way that the bags in the sea attract the turtles, but with the intention of raising awareness that these bags should never reach the sea.

The surface area of the plastic bags in the light installations represents the average consumption of one person in 20 months.

‘Like Turtles’ was exhibited during Off Llum BCN 2022 circuit, an alternative route to Llum BCN Festival which seeks to focus on experimental light art.

Nuestro Mar Vibra – Artec Studio

Light-art

Memories of the Mediterranean sun

Nuestro Mar Vibra (Our Sea Vibrates) is a light artwork by Maurici Ginés evocative of a fragmented vision of the dawn and the reflection of the Sun in the Mediterranean sea.

The light art was presented in ‘Luz Madrid 2021’ (Madrid Light Festival) and was possible thanks to the collaboration of Simon Group, promoter of the artwork.

Located in the South Patio of Conde Duque, the artwork infused with lighting and sound effects aimed to transport visitors to the mediterranean coast and fill them with vital energy.

The artist´s work explores the synergy between design, art and people through the medium of light, developing interactive, sensory experiences, arrtworks and lighting identities.

    Interacció

    Instal·lació interactiva i dinàmica programada amb Arduïno i Resolume emprant també tinta conductiva. Adreçada a tota mena de públic siguin o no residents de Barcelona, permet consultar de manera lliure en quin espai he circulat durant un dels molts trajectes realitzats entre el meu lloc de residència i la universitat.

    El projecte consta d’una representació de l’espai recorregut en forma de tauler on s’hi troben 4 botons. Cadascun d’ells correspon a un punt en concret que pot veure’s des de 3 angles diferents, angles que representen la triangulació necessària per seguir qualsevol punt concret a través de satèl·lits i, per tant, la que contínuament situa la nostra posició i la dels nostres telèfons mòbils.

    Així mateix, serà la curiositat d’aquell qui interactuï en cada moment la que definirà quina porció d’espai es mostra per tal de transmetre el poder de control a l’usuari i provocar una reflexió al respecte.

    El sistema interactiu, senzill però eficaç, permet incitar als visitants a fer la seva aportació i a donar un significat a la instal·lació que no seria la mateixa sense la possibilitat d’interacció.
