The light of Barcelona

In February, when night falls, light transforms the Poblenou neighbourhood of Barcelona into a research lab for artists around the world, with Llum Barcelona. National and international creators and art, design, lighting and architecture schools of Barcelona use light, movement, virtual reality or AI, to explore new forms and meanings for public space and widen the limits of our own perceptions. A great event which challenges conventions and claims that light, digital technology or image in movement can form part of the city’s urban landscape without being in the service of its commercialization.

We have selected three works by local creators who have developed their designs together with the company SIMON.
