Mind the light

Light links the urban space and its people in a direct and intuitive way

Mind the light is an ephemeral light installation designed for the Filux light festival in Mexico City that aims to link the urban space and the people in a direct and intuitive way.

Three rectangular frames of light placed in the middle of a pedestrian route invited visitors to gather and interact. When visitors entered the frames, their shadows were cast on the sidewalk and surrounding buildings, altering their perceptions of the night-time urban space they usually take for granted. The frames also altered their sense of themselves, as well as of each other. And, of course, they proved irresistible to those looking to take selfies.

Vinyl signs saying “Mind the Light” at the base of each frame mimicked the alert signs found in train stations and other public spaces. Here, though, the pun on “mind” was a reminder to be conscious of the richness light brings to our lives.
