STALACTITE - an astounding audio-visual show (Photos + Video)

in blog •  last year  (edited)


STALACTITE is a monumental light installation as part of the 2018 edition of the BRIGHT BRUSSELS FESTIVAL. The installation is represented by the TETRO+A and created by German artist Christopher Bauder, tailed to the electronic music of Boris Divider. The installation is also the only indoor one at the light festival, it is situated in Brussels' spacious Citroën garage, a future "Pompidou" of Brussels, that is becoming a major contemporary art venue in town.

a tapering structure hanging like an icicle from the roof of a cave, formed of calcium salts deposited by dripping water.

As its name indicates, Stalactite is a huge suspended sculpture and light structure, which consists of 360 light rods, connecting each other in shapes of triangle.

Together with the tailored electronic made by Boris Divider, the whole show creates an idea of futurism.

Before the show starts



Lights, shapes, glittering Stalactite of the crazy 21th century world of ours.

During the show, a shape that ensembles EOS logo keeps being highlighted.

Here is the video:

The creators hope to invite us to get rid of the things that weigh us down through this audio-visual statement, and to eliminate the trivial stress that we encounter in our life, and to live the moment.

"So slow down and glisten as one of the endless droplets that collect below this glittering stalactite."

作为BRIGHT BRUSSELS灯光节的一部分,STALACTITE是一个巨大的灯光装置,由法工作室国TETRO + A推送,德国艺术家Christopher Bauder创作而成,加上Boris Divider为之搭配的电音。STALACTITE也是这次灯光节的唯一一个在室内的装置,位于布鲁塞尔宽敞的Citroen车库,这个巨大的车库将会成为布鲁塞尔未来的“蓬皮杜”,展览当代艺术作品。


STALACTITE对于我来说是一个新鲜的单词,字面意思是洞穴中悬挂的石钟乳、石笋、石柱等不同形态碳酸钙沉淀物的总称。这个灯光装置用了这个词命名应该是由于悬挂在屋顶。只有360个灯柱互相连接成三角形,组成了一个巨大的四面体。搭配上现代感的电音,非常有未来主义的感觉。TETRO + A旨在通过复杂又同意的形状和音乐让人民忘记现实的错综和繁琐,沉浸在颜色,形状,灯光和音乐中,享受现在的每一刻。
