Installation - Light show

Chrysalis is a light and sound installation based on the shapes of the luminescent creatures that inhabited the realms of the sea depths and the abyssal pits.

It is a visual and musical spectacle that transports us to the depths by the hand of a reflective spherical body, conceptually and architecturally inspired by ctenophores and the resonant shells of marine snails.

This 2 meters diameter sphere is able to rotate, unfold and fold showing a luminescent core that radiates from the center of the organism.

As a result, this mysterious organism carries out a coordinated choreography of reflections, light and shadow to the rhythm of an ocean-inspired music, based on synthesisers and water sounds.

Chrysalis was premiered in 2019 at Llum BCN festival.
