For 71 years, the attention of the world has set over Costa Rica for our emblem of peace, thanks to the abolishment of the army on December 1st, 1948.
We designed a setup in accordance to the celebration of such an important date in our history: an involving experience from ground and above, bringing together video, light, sound and interaction over a great venue, Plaza de la Democracia (Democracy and Army Abolishment park).
Under the concept “impossible”, our team developed audiovisual content to commemorate the most important act in our history, shining the light over our culture, one that allows possible the greatest achievements.
Under the request from the Ministry of Culture and the national Government, in commemoration of the 71st anniversary of the abolishment of the army, we designed an installation thought for inclusion, celebration and placemaking.
We stood away from traditional setups, with an experience that made the park a stage itself. Thus, participating the audience as part of the story instead of observers.
We designed and implemented a multi sensory experience with a system of suspended lights, beaming in synchrony with sound systems and LED screen totems distributed around the park to multiply and facilitate visual engagement in complement of a main screen
The environment created allowed an immersive experience that took over the park.
Our work included the AV content for the opening show, which included historical images in a high impact edit.
As a whole, the installation envisioned creating a space for reflection, celebration and fun in our ever evolving and developing city.
