After its successful stint at Llum BCN, Slow Light now travels to Sónar+D. From 15 to 17 June, this proposal devised by Design, Graphic Design, Product Design, and Motion Graphics and Video students from IED Barcelona, will be one of the 80 projects on show within the Project Area, the renewed space of the festival where the general public can interact with the proposals by creators, companies, start-ups and institutions.
Among other topics, Slow Light falls within Sónar+D’s interest in exploring artists’ response to the climate emergency. The installation works without electricity and bases its operation on group interaction: it is the visitors who bring it to life by focusing the flashlights of their mobile phones on the elements that compose it.
Thus, the intention of the creative proposal is that, while discovering light and playing with it, visitors are aware of their responsibility as energy consumers and of their power to change things when acting collectively.
