Prisma/Art Light Tech takes place on October 11th and 12th in Aveiro, being a festival that takes light as its central element, the basic raw material to be shaped by art. It combines several contemporary art installations, including projections, installations and works of sound and light, taking place in various areas of the city with the presence of internationally renowned artists. Prisma will strengthen an intelligent environment for the growth of the creative industries in Aveiro, based on cooperation between creatives, students, artists and companies. Prisma will bring to the city an inviting, fun atmosphere and will invite you to explore and (re) discover the city in a new light. Prisma also wants to be a contribution to good environmental management by drawing attention to energy efficiency and inviting the use of soft modes of mobility.
The premiere of Prisma is made with ten points of light enjoyment, in an open circuit that will pass places such as Praça Marquês de Pombal, Baixa de Santo António and the Museum of Aveiro/Santa Joana, for example, including the canals of Ria de Aveiro. Among the artists present are figures from countries such as Japan, Germany, the Czech Republic and France, and there is room for a selected artist through a call for an artistic residency. The music was not forgotten, with the presence of a DJ and an MC to animate a battle of digital sketchers in Praça da República, and a performance of classical music in interaction with the light in the bandstand of Parque Infante Dom Pedro.
