Plaza Santa Ana
Plaza de Santa Ana is a tricky place surrounded by new buildings and one beautiful stone church wall. There are many pieces of urban equipment such as benches, children playgrounds, trash cans and lamps. All this makes it difficult to intervene with some object that would fit in the environment. We chose the lamps (or rather lanterns because those are bit historical looking) as the most interesting piece to use for the installation.
During twilight when the lamps start to shine, atmosphere of the plaza will change. Darkness hides the details and people passing the plaza change to silhouettes, colours will dim. That is the moment when our installation starts to work. It surrounds one of the lamps and creates unique meeting space. The installation is very subtle it winds up around the lantern as a spider web casting weird shadows. There are myriads of lamps around the world and there are many lamps in city Logroño there are plenty Lamps on Plaza de Santa Ana exactly it is six, but it gives us sense to make one of them special.
The Lantern is the place. The Lantern is a statue.
The Lantern is a wooden spider web. We have
fought for a long time with unlimited task and
limited space. We finally got it. In our designs,
night light lamps have always hindered us. At the
complicated Plaza de Santa Ana, we designed
an installation that uses the existing street
lighting. The wooden cage is a daily sunshade
and a glowing night lamp.
