Lighting Guerrilla's Laboratory, reinforced by the Finnish grandmaster of lighting Kari Kola, this time strives to realize one of the most demanding projects so far. The ambitious illumination of the park Zvezda in Ljubljana represents the final phase of a several months running workshop that Kari Kola held with students (and their professors) from the Faculty of architecture, Faculty of Natural Sciences – Department of Textiles, Academy of Fine Arts and Design and School of Design and Photography.
The project aims to test contemporary techniques of urban lighting. The concept of the illumination stems from the geometry of the park and its flora, where the use of different dynamic light sources and hovering sculptures creates a special kind of ambiental experience. Conceived as a huge open-air installation, the park is thus transformed into a geometrical playground of lights and abstract shapes that constantly change the park's character. The project is made in cooperation with various groups of students and their mentors who will be able to enrich their knowledge and experience in the fields of light design and collective endeavor, which makes the project even more valuable.
