Kooperativa Installation Wave - Hyperbinary

  • Prague, 2018


For the first time in 2018, the main partner of the Signal Festival was the insurance company Kooperativa, whose headquarters based in Karlin played the main role in the Wave light installation by the Czech studio Hyperbinary. Kooperativa's headquarters won the MIPIM Awards in 2011 in the category of the best office building in the world. Hyperbinary brought the facade of the building to life with a light installation.

The lighting installation made up of one hundred twenty programmable LED poles explores the physical phenomenon of wave motion and its forms. An example may be the energy of a vibrating movement of a particle which is progressively transferring to the other particles in its surroundings. The consequence is the fact that the energy of the vibrating movement spreads in space gradually and is transferred to even more distant particles. In this way, one can perceive a certain change occurring in the substance, a sort of agitation. These phenomena are transposed by the Hyperbinary studio into the visual or audiovisual form, which gives birth to a work of art able to explore its very own form since the light and sound represent a form of a wave.
