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.
