The lab department has explored the most interactive, social, artistic and exciting aspects of the light as a channel to express intangible contents. This enables us to shape our perception and cognition when being part of experiences, interacting with artworks, or creating identities through light. The artec3 lab, in continuous artistic experimentation with light, has evolved to summalab. Find more about it.
El MolinoBarcelona, Spain 2010
The lighting concept of the facade of "El Molino" proposes integrating a contemporary intervention into a culturally historic building by introducing the artistic and roguish spirit of the show for which it's famous. This emblematic place is characterized, through an element of "Media" communication that allows dialogue and interacts with the environment as part of the architecture and not as something added. At the same time, the historic facade is illuminated while respecting the lighting system and the classic night image that identifies it as appropriate to the technology of contemporary lighting systems. The public enters the building to see the function and the building shows its essence to bring new experiences, visual performances to the Parallel night life.
