TechnoAlpin - Festive Snowflakes
Luce Dipinta worked alongside TechnoAlpin to realise a large-scale public Christmas message on their Bolzano headquarters. TechnoAlpin is a world leader in snow making technology, their products and services can be seen at ski resorts around the globe, therefore their choice of content was obvious - snowflakes.
A huge tower had to be constructed to contain all the projection equipment at a height to avoid obstructions and creating shadows. The event kicked off on 1st December and ran each night until 2nd January 2017.
Resonantia - The Anatomy of a Building
This twenty minute performance was produced for the Lana Lights Festival 2015 in Lana, Italy.
It explores the soul, the ambience and anatomy of the disused Zuegg jam and juice factory, using sounds, coerced and composed live by Peter#KOMPRIPIOTR#Holzknect, with images, video and programming by Alex Rowbotham. Surrounded in resonance as we all are from birth to death, where everything reflects back to us through sound and image. Naturally the acoustic sense is strongly connected with the limbic system as visual reflections enter our consciousness. In a sense we are catalysts and are in resonance with our acoustic and visual environments, in all that we encounter.
Lana Lights Festival is organised by Luce Dipinta Multivisioni

The beauty of art, the magic of the landscape and the ideal refuge for the body and the soul, attracted many famous people to Asolo, in different times, who loved it and lived in it. Of these, there were three women; Caterina Cornaro, Eleonora Duse and Freya Stark, who were unconnected by time but deeply tied to this town. Travellers, enterprising, nonconformist and intellectuals of international fame that contributed to elect the image of Asolo as a place ideal for its beauty and its high quality.
