Paseo del Espolón – Concéntrico 08
Dark sky, simulates an owl that has just landed in the middle of the city. The intervention will make the Paseo del Espolón an intergenerational space that integrates the whole city in a dialogue with the Concha del Espolón, a kiosk in the form of an auditorium created in 1954.
The large yellow metal structure stands out for its curved contours and wooden cladding which, like the enigmas surrounding the myth of the owl, shows us a symbolic space that transforms between day and night:
During the day, the installation has an almost maternal presence that invites us to create intergenerational situations around three cohabiting spaces:
– a double tunnel for children’s play in which, as in the famous Tragantua, they are invited to enter the nose of the owl;
– a double inclined plane offering the possibility to lie down informally;
– a high plane, at the back, which invites to settle down, to exchange and to look at life through a visor.
At night, the owl wakes up and its eyes light up, inviting passers-by to settle down on its sloping surface to gaze at the stars. A work that appeals to the senses and reaffirms that the sky is above all a space of imagination and freedom where everything is in eternal movement.
