Lighting up urban tactics
Last one out, switch off the light.
Luminale2014, Lighting Culture Biennale.
Städelschule, Frankfurt Am Main.
31st march – 4th april 2014
A lighting installation with urban parameters in the concept, but “domestic” in the way of use: switches, dimmers and color changing are in hand of users and visitors. The city is your place: please, feel comfortable, adapt lights to your needs, and be responsible of energy consumption.
A temporary lighting installation where visitors have been provided of a simple and friendly interface so they were able to change the light scenarios according to their needs and preferences. An artistic intervention whose sense is not just the event itself: an opportunity to talk about the parameters used in public lighting design, and to introduce subjects as ergonomic, human scale, perception-oriented design.
