In the heart of Alpilles, the monumental "Carrières de Lumières" host extraordinary multimedia shows which are unique in the world. Culturespaces is organising an innovative and ambitious project with 4 key aspects :
- A new programme of cultural events on the theme of the History of Art in the Carrières rooms and galleries : audio visual shows, live shows, concerts, lectures, and more. The ‘Carrières de Lumières' aims to become a cultural hub for multiple events, and will be offering one big new show every year profiling the greatest names in the History of Art.
- A new event in which the Carrières quarries are gradually lit up to highlight the unique nature of the site between each show, allowing to admire their mineral beauty.
- New high-performance technological equipment for this outstanding audio visual show. Each area of the Carrières invites visitors on an extraordinary audio visual journey made possible by cutting-edge technological equipment and methods developed by Culturespaces and its multimedia partners: 70 video projectors, 3D audio adapted to the specific characteristics of the site, etc.
- More surfaces used in the show to give it more breadth and extend this artistic journey.
Spectators are totally immersed in the image projected onto all the surfaces of the rock. We are now using twice the number of video projectors in order to cover twice the wall area. The ground is completely covered, too, and becomes a vast carpet of images.
