For the first time in Italy, the French collective group Coin will interpret the evocative setting of the Circus Maximus in a new light by means of the monumental installation entitled Globoscope: 256 luminous spheres arranged in an area of more than 3,000 metres squared and controlled by a wireless system that will transform the arena into a digital landscape.
Mathematics, sound and lighting will be used by the digital artist Maxime Houot, of the collective group Coin, to reproduce, transform and amplify the urban space, as well as offering spectators a surrealistic walk under the stars on the evenings of the 9th and 10th of September.
The festival will continue on the evenings of the 11th and 12th September in Piazza Navona. The Renaissance faҫade of the Church of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart will be transfigured by the 3-D projections of the artists “Apparati Effimeri” from Bologna, in a synergic composition of spectacular colours, sounds, lights and images that play on the aesthetic canvas of the architecture. 3-D glasses will be distributed to visitors in the square who can then immerse themselves in the first 3-D mapping ever presented in the capital. Architectonic mapping is a form of digital art that through 2-D and 3-D projections effectively transforms the architectural structures hosting the performance into stages or projection screens. Music accompanies these gigantic extraordinary visual effects, helping to create a pluri-sensorial experience that is highly evocative.
