description EN:

It’s a solar clock driven installation, designed for Boom Festival, that starts at sunset and ends at sunrise, with generative geometry controlling 6 robotic beams, standing on top of 6 neo-megalithic structures made by atelier Rethorica with bio construction techniques.

Every hour, and every half hour, the interactive mode activates for 10 minutes, and the boomers can control the lights with their bodies.

During the first half hour the installation is focused on Earth light patterns, projected on the ground. During the second half hour, the focus is the night sky, using lines to draw Sacred Geometry in the starred canvas.

bio construction and concept by Rethorica Studio (Pedro Pereira, Miguel Madrinha, Vasco Duque, Miguel Setas)
coding, concept and tech installation by Rui Gato, David Negrão and João Data (Datagrama).
