The 'Alice' project, carried out by Elisava students, has attracted steady gazes in the last edition of Llum BCN, an urban festival located in the neighborhood of Poblenou (Barcelona), where light becomes the central element and shows us a new city.
After winning the last edition with the project 'Llacuna', our Master and Undergraduate students have designed and produced an artistic installation that challenges pedestrians who, watching from the ground, are overwhelmed by the dimensions of the surrounding buildings, and who feel lost and disoriented in the architectural maze of large urban centers. 'Alice' also denounces the rushed lifestyle large cities follow, where there seems to be no time to stop, and it acts as an escape route from an oppressive to let people plunge towards a new, unknown and mysterious dimension, full of possibilities and freedom, where time does not matter and routines do not exist.
'Alice' has already received the request for participating in the Festival Lluèrnia de Olot (Girona), other great Catalan event based on the design of lighting and artistic installations, and take part in the new edition, which will take place next November.
