After being presented in the gardens of the Palácio de Belém in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, in 2013, Constell.ation traveled to Amsterdam, for the Amsterdam Light Festival, one of most renowned light festivals in Europe.

Materialized by a network of nine contiguous arches in red corrugated plastic tube illuminated from its interior by RGB controlled LED, Constell.ation dances delicately in the Dutch garden, showing new spatial qualities and crafting unexpected routes. The garden is overthrown by a powerful red light, which instantly invokes for the Christmas motif.

The red color, of Amsterdam and also of the flexible corrugated tube, gets even more relevance during the day, because of its complementarily with the green from the garden, obtaining an enormous chromatic contrast, capable of expanding the impact of the installation to the passer-by and creating a unexpected and inspirational experience to all the visitors for the Festival.
