Onionlab’s spectacular 3D stereoscopic mapping stood out at Barcelona’s last edition of the ‘LLUM BCN’ festival in 2016.
With LLUM BCN, Barcelona celebrated from February 11 to February 14, 2016 its winter ‘Fiesta Mayor’ in honor of Santa Eulàlia. LLUM BCN is a festival that brings together light and tradition. During this time, different sites around Barcelona were illuminated by spectacular light installations at nightfall.
‘Axioma’, a mind blowing 3D stereoscopic mapping created by the young multidisciplinary studio Onionlab was considered as a special highlight of the entire program. Everybody who came to Plaça del Rei from Friday to Sunday was completely dazzled by the virtual transformations of colors and shapes. The audience had to wear special colored glasses to enjoy all the numerous animations. ‘Axioma’ was Onionlab’s first commissioned project for the Barcelona town hall. They enjoyed total freedom during the entire creation process. Their animation can be described as a three dimensional illusion, which has been created from countless 2D images, a technique with which Onionlab has already flirted in previous works such as ‘Diplopía’. ‘Axioma’, their recend work for LLUM BCN is an interpretation of geometry, focusing on the study of the properties of geometrical figures such as points, straight lines, planes, curves, polygons, etc.
