Brillen en la Foscor

LLUM Festival Barcelona 2017

The Brillen en la Foscor installation is an instrument which invites visitors to discover its function and meaning through touch, light, and sound. Visitors to the Pati Llimona were exposed to a field of luminescent strings that weave through the patio anchored at 13 points, each representing the different parts of Santa Eulalia’s experience.

By interacting with the instrument, the visitor activated a shockwave of light and sound which reverberate through the instrument’s strings forming a constellation of connections. Multiple visitors were encouraged to play the instrument together to form new patterns of light and compositions of sound.

The work seeked to engage the visitors through playful discovery, and furthermore use this engagement to connect people to the story of Santa Eulalia through their senses rather than through an explicit narrative.

Brillen en la Foscor was at the Pati Llimona, Carrer del Regomir 3, from the 10th to the 12th of February 2017.
