Globoscope is an immersive work made up of 200-250 luminous spheres. Collectif Coin uses light design to activate a digitized map of the space. Configured in harmony with the characteristics of the Scottsdale Waterfront, each individual sphere in this landscape is merged into an ensemble of light movements that swirl throughout the space. Mathematics and light are used to represent, transform, and expand the space, offering visitors a surrealistic stroll.
Collectif Coin, creators of “Globoscope”, is an experiential light art installation and design lab based out of Grenoble, France. Their work has occupied monumental public spaces as well as more intimate locations, each equally as immersive of an experience. Committed to the production of trans-disciplinary work with particular focus on the digital arts, Collectif Coin works around the notions of body, sound and light. Their work has been shown all over France, Italy, Berlin, Romania and Canada.
The Artist Talk will be held at the Casablanca Rooftop Lounge (7134 E Stetson Dr, Ste 300, Scottsdale, Arizona 8525) on Friday, February 23 at 7pm.
