The festival fuses all the components of beauty, art, culture, education, innovation and higher thinking into one glorious event.
It includes rich programmes, grouped into clusters based on up to 20 locations with new highlights every year showcase the architectural splendour of Sharjah and the beauty of its buildings.
Many of the designs are poetic and inspired by local culture, stories and traditions or incorporate nature and space, some are based on more modern art and design, all are beautiful and thought provoking.
The Sharjah Light Festival extends to the east coast towns of Dibba, Khorfakkan and Kalba. The 2019 edition featured well known artists and curators such as Larent Langlois, Cindy Lo, Studio Halpeji and Group F
For a second year in a row, we were invited by Nomada to participate at the Sharjah Light Festival 2017.
For this occasion we introduced Maestro, a new interactive video mapping, controlled by the user through a futuristic illuminated console.
The installation was set up on a half kilometer long building with 19 video projectors of 20,000 lumens and 8 sky-tracers.
The users were offered to choose between three original Mappings: SAND, MOSAIC and ORGAN.
To complete this creative and technological challenge, Tigrelab teamed up with great talents: Hand Coded was in charge of the generative visuals and sounds, our technological partners ProtoPixel took care of the creative technology and the lighting control, Thomas Aussenac from SoundBox created the Music and Sound Design, and Joan Molins and Roger Amat were in charge of the Motion Design and Animation.
This project has been rewarded during the Sharjah Light Festival 2017 for “Best Installation”.
