EYE_BEACON

This artwork is located on a bridge but is inspired by what happens in water, in the deep dark waters of the sea to be exact.  Organisms live in darkness and have to create and emit their own light there. This mechanism is known as bioluminescence and is used communicate with other organism or to attracts similar species or prey.

Eye_Beacon from UNStudio consists out of two connected cubes that are arched with each other with a custom made a stretchable fabric. Through LED projections the colors of the artwork change constantly.

Eye_Beacon is also as the central information booth of the festival and the artwork that connects the Water Colors boat rout to the Illuminade walking route.
