…and bright objects to fill empty spaces

May 21, 2010

From the second cathegory of LED I chose the following installations as my favourite ones.

Title: “Spiro Gira”

Artist: Patricia Urquiola

Location: Corso Vittorio Emanuele

Doodles and tangles become enlightened hanging objects which follow one to another.

Title: “Ride it to light it (Bike Lamps – The Carouselle)”

Artists: Ignacio Ojanguren Alvarez, Christina Perdikaki, Hafsteinn Juliusson

Location: “Bike Lamps” in Bikemi Stations: Duomo via Mengoni, Via Arcivescovado, San Babila, Via Bergognone, Largo Cairoli, Largo Carrobbio, Piazza Santa Maria Beltrade, Piazza Missori, Piazza Medaglie D’Oro, Colonne di San Lorenzo.
“Carouselle”: Colonne di San Lorenzo

People can ride bicycles of light and create energy, lighting the lamps. A way to think about eco-sustainability and electric consumption.

Title: “Pulse”

Artists: Giuseppe Morando, Valentina Mammoli, Katrien Stakenborghs, Antonella Cheche

Location: Galleria del Corso

Bright tubes hang from the ceiling, swaying with the wind and changing colours.

Title: “Fiori di luce nella brezza della notte”

Artists: Lorenza Golinelli, Selena Mascia, Marco Morotti, Alberto Ricci Petitoni, Andrea Tampieri

Location: Piazza San Fedele

A grass in bloom – with blades that shine at night – in the very heart of Milan.

Title: “Animali di luce”

Location: Corso Garibaldi

Bright animals invade the center of Milan.
