GoPhoton! ends with a dance, music and light show

GoPhoton! has come to an end with a spectacular dance, music and light show, “Obre les Ulls” (Open the Eyes) that has attracted more than 800 people in an iconic building in the center of Barcelona, the Museum of Barcelona’s History. After last year’s success of GoPhoton! in Barcelona’s light festival Llum BCN, this year ICFO, GoPhoton!’s partner in Barcelona,  was invited again to take part of this event that takes place in February every year. For this occasion, and as this event would be the last activity of the GoPhoton! project, ICFO organized a big light show that through dance and micro mappings showcases the impact that photonics has in society’s daily life. The public could see how light-based technologies surround us, in such broad range of situations such as the lighting systems to communications or health. 

 

The show was designed in collaboration with ICFO by the company Muralla15. This show had been previously seen in Paris, during IOTA’s PhotonicSplash, where it was also very well received.
