LEDSCAPE

 

‘LEDscape’ is an installation which deals with light as a constructive element of space and landscape. It is located in the CCB – Belém Cultural Centre in Lisbon and aims to introduce the everyday user to the Ledare light bulb, thus demystifying the preconceived ideas about LED technology and emphasizing the relevance of this product in the sustainability of the future. ‘LEDscape’ challenges the passerby to an interactive experience – a pathway gradually lit with 1200 light spots, invites introspection and individual appropriation of the installation.

(I)CONE

 

‘(I)cone’ is an impertinent and interactive orange installation, of a great visual impact, waiting to surprise citizens and inviting them to experience the public space in a new way.  We chose to use plastic as the main material of a permanent art installation, because it is hard and very resistant thus offering a range of possibilities for this type of intervention. This art installation subverts the original meaning of the object – the traditional orange traffic cones, which usually require traffic to circumvent an obstacle – inviting visitors to cross and interact with it.

‘(I)cone’ uses the traffic cone as its modular structure, taking advantage of their formal and chromatic characteristics, building a portico that encourages citizens to have a closer proximity with art.

By night, the orange plastic is lit with a red LED network, illuminating the installation in Paredes City Park.
