Large scale art installations
Barcelonian creative studio Hamill Industries presents Vortex, a geometric array of light boxes and smoke suspended in the ceiling reacting to sound. The boxes are activated in sync brightening and creating swirls of smoke that flood the entire space, creating an immersive experience for the viewer.
Barcelonian design studio Onionlab presents Al_Vectors, an immersive installation that plays with the artificial intelligence of robots and the search of light. The connection between a laser and robotic arms movements create geometric patterns that flood the space, creating playful reflections.
adidas NMD Room presents “Cluster” by Playmodes. The transdisciplinary studio focused on digital creativity, presents Cluster, an immersive audiovisual installation adapted to one of the rooms of Fabra i Coats. The installation geometrically adapted to the space by lighting instruments that generate an audiovisual speech in real time, transforming the space into something abstract through light and sound.
