A Meeting of Art and Renewed Aesthetics
Maurici Ginés, known for his prominent participation in Llum BCN, seizes the opportunity to work in the renovated space under the renowned aesthetic of Mariscal at the Westfield Glòries shopping centre.
The “Light of Love” artwork centres around a large-scale sculpture installed by the iconic designer as a welcoming element. Using fabrics that contain interactive lighting, Ginés creates a unique light art experience. The structure wrapped in Biodegradable EVA Plastic becomes a luminous skin that pulsates and reacts to the presence of individuals who choose to immerse themselves in it.
Sustainability that Beats with Intensity
The choice of Biodegradable EVA Plastic for the “Light of Love” artwork emphasizes Ginés and EXPAFOL’s commitment to sustainability. This material, manufactured by EXPAFOL, stands out for its natural degradation capability, reducing environmental impact.
Using Biodegradable EVA Plastic in the light installation offers an impressive aesthetic experience and promotes respect and care for our surroundings.
Interaction that Drives the Artwork’s Heartbeat
“Light of Love” becomes a participatory experience as people enter its luminous skin. The more individuals seek shelter and immerse themselves in the sculpture, the more vibrant the pulsating light becomes.
This interaction between the audience and the artwork creates a special connection where light and sound intertwine to create an unforgettable experience. At selected times, the installation is accompanied by the thematic music “Love is in the air,” provided by a DJ, further intensifying the emotional connection and the pulsation to the rhythm of the music.
