Llum BCN 2022 festival in Barcelona is all about lighting the streets with personality. For this year’s event, LEDS C4 took on the signage project by contributing to two artistic installations: the “Treequency” project, the work of a group of students at IED Barcelona design school, and the OracLED artistic installation by BeatMe Lab, which is taking part in the Off Llum alternative circuit, combining video mapping and pixel mapping to recreate scenes straight from a dream.
Llum BCN 2022 is an extensive laboratory full of night-time landscapes that are home to a wide range of artistic disciplines, placing it among some of the world’s top light art events, such as those in Eindhoven, Prague and Lyon.
The signage project is made up of 19 large light sculptures that are strategically placed throughout the Poblenou district of Barcelona, one of the city’s most dynamic and vibrant areas and the perfect setting for the Festival of the Light Arts.
The main design element of each signage sculpture was a circle: a simple expression that symbolises the concept of a place, a meeting point. The rings with built-in LED strips were designed by the special project department at LEDS C4. They are all 1.5 metres in diameter and installed on minimalist structures at a height of three metres.
Each ring was lit up in one of three basic and easily distinguishable colours: red, blue or yellow. Each colour represented the different parts of the festival: festival locations (red), schools (blue) and external collaborations with the festival (yellow).
