Making of San Sebastian’s “Bridge of Coexistence”
Anointed the European Capital of Culture 2016, the coastal Basque resort city of San Sebastian marked the honor with a sweeping and tasteful installation on the picturesque Maria Cristina bridge designed and implemented by Barcelona studio Tigrelab.
“The talented director Hansel Cereza asked us to join him to create the visual content and technical side for the Opening Ceremony of San Sebastian Capital of Culture 2016.
“For this macro event, we covered the 90-meter long bridge with 164 stripes of 4-meter LED lights. The LEDs were synchronized with the visuals which were rear-projected on nine screens.
“For the closing of the ceremony we design a multimedia show with composed music to replace the traditional fireworks closing. For this, we used over a 100 lights by the river side and sync’d them with the projection, LED lights and flamethrowers.”
