LEDS C4 joins one more year the Barcelona Grec Festival with a new interactive light installation: 'Resilience'

'Resilience' is an immersive lighting experience that invites the visitors to think about the latest Europe events.

In this edition of the Grec Festival 2022, Europe is the leading continent and LEDS C4 proposes to get into its interactive installation "Resilience", in the gardens of the Teatre Grec in Montjuïc: an immersive lighting experience that highlights the enormous capacity of the new generations to overcome the obstacles and traumatic circumstances that we have recently experienced, such as Covid-19, the war in Ukraine or the environmental crisis.

The "digitotems" are distributed along the garden, lighting elements designed by LEDS C4 specifically for this installation, with a 2.5-meter vertical body that blends into the environment. Its function is to create an interactive space, with a scene of calm -in shades of blue, purple and warm white light-, but giving the user the possibility to interact through a button, which will trigger an atmosphere of chaos, with red, black and white. This settings will evoke sensations of instability in the visitors for a few seconds, returning to calm again.

In the adjacent paths, purple lighting is used, which represents the observation and empathy capacity of the human being. For the restaurant and rest area, a warm white color has been chosen, offering a sense of security and calm in the user.

"We live in the era of connectivity, and what better way to represent it at the Grec than to connect light with people in a spectacular way," says Carlos Martínez, head of Control & Connectivity team at LEDS C4.

On the night of June 29, the installation will be presented to those attending the opening of the Grec Festival 2022.

In order to materialize the idea of Resilience, LEDS C4 has collaborated with the catalan company ProtoPixel. Its lighting platform has been able to make real the vision and mission of light in this project. These lighting contents have been programmed to be projected on the 18 digital totems -2.5 meters high and strategically distributed along the main corridor of the garden-. When any visitor activates the button, it interrupts the scene and activates the previously programmed sequence.

“Through our lighting software, together with LEDS C4, we have made possible a light based on space and time to express the essence of the project. The ability of our software to integrate sensors and interfaces makes it possible for the visitor to interact with the installation in a natural way and causing a disruptive experience. Light is more than an element to see, it allows us to connect with space, communicate emotions and improve our day to day”, says Sebastian Mealla, ProtoPixel's CEO.
