Houston Here

“It’s Raining Cloud”, a storm in reverse created in a large artificial cloud thanks to the active involvement of one hundred people from the audience who meet inside it and reproduce the sound of all the stages of a storm using only their bodies. This natural sound triggers a set of surprising visual effects that result in a great show visible from both inside and outside the cloud.

Limited capacity.



Encants Barcelona - Fira de Bellcaire
(Av. Meridiana)

Av. Meridiana


Alex Posada i Xavi Bayona

Polyhedra is an audioreactive light sculpture in the shape of a regular polyhedron. The luminous geometry floats in the space and takes advantage of the reflections of the mirrored roof of Els Encants Market, which multiply and strengthen the light in all directions. An effect that is reinforced by the dynamic programming of LED lights and other elements of this installation, created specifically for this emblematic market.

Limited capacity.

Friday 15, from 9.30 pm to midnight, Saturday 16, from 10 pm to midnight; Sunday, February 17 from 7 pm to 11 pm.


Etsab Storm

Caseta ADIF
(Carrer d’Àlaba, 153)


ETSAB, Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona




A mysterious place difficult to access, located in front of the railway tracks and disturbed only by the racket of passing trains at variable time intervals, it is the setting for this light and sound show which plunges the public into a storm that passes through all its phases to reach its climax coinciding with the train passing by. Once the train has passed, everything goes back to the tense calm that signals that the cycle will start again.

Joanie Lemercier i Paul Jebanasam


Joanie Lemercier is one of the key artists working in Europe today that are expanding the possibilities of light as a medium. After exploring languages such as video mapping, live shows and gallery installations, in this new piece he uses an unlikely material to present his elegant and meticulous work: water. 

In Constellations, the DHUB lake becomes a gateway for the exploration of the cosmos. The 3D-like visuals enable us to move from the heart of a black hole into deep space, travelling through planets and stars, as we look for the limits of the universe. Constellations is a fascinating journey where the vectorial, monochromatic aesthetics of Lemercier form a dialogue with the electronic soundscapes of producer Paul Jebanasam. 

Joanie Lemercier is a French artist primarily focused on projections of light in space and their influence on our perception. He has always had a strong interest in physical structures: geometry, patterns, and minimalist forms. Since 2006 Lemercier has worked with projected light, co-founding the visual label AntiVJ in 2008 with Yannick Jacquet, Romain Tardy and Olivier Ratsi.

In 2013, he founded a creative studio to develop installations, gallery pieces and visual experiments.

Freedom as a collection of lights and a flash of brilliance.
Freedom that is reflected in light, this small rage that lights us up and awakens our “Reaction”!
Made up of lights and mirrors, the installation is meant to be a reflection on the essence of our life in society, as free individuals and groups. Each of us as the focus of a mirror highlighting our critical opinions with the society we live  and build in.

A fun, interactive installation for all the family, where the public can draw freely and collaboratively by means of some different coloured LED light modules that must be positioned in a vertical panel. The panel has different holes in the form of a matrix in which the LED modules can be arranged and rearranged at any time, as if they were simultaneously both digital and physical pixels.

Nautilus is an audio and visual sculpture and, at the same time, an instrument. It collects the sound of the bubbles that burst inside its methacrylate cylinders to process and amplify it. It plays a generative score independently, composing in real time thanks to randomisers from different harmonic and rhythmic universes. The nervous system of the Nautilus is held within a harmonium and can be played by the public.

Alice may be tempting for pedestrians who feel lost inside an architectural labyrinth that accentuates the accelerated pace of life in the great urban centres where it seems that there is no time to stop still. Alice may be an escape route from this oppressive reality. It may be the white rabbit’s invisible burrow that can thrust us into the unknown where time is of no essence and the daily routine does not exist. Alice is the reflection of an illusion.

#geocidi #ESDAPCatalunya


Peaceful plots of land disrupted by the noise of drills, cranes, scaffolding and the birth of growing structures: everything forms part of a repeated cycle that leaves no trace of what could have been. Geocidi is the collective action of a single species among millions of other species that is altering our planet to the extreme, which means that it could become unrecognisable and unable to sustain life. Geocidi is a visual message of the metamorphosis Barcelona is currently undergoing.

Multilayer “Welcome”

Next to the old chimney of Can Framis
(Carrer de Roc Boronat, 116-126)

(Carrer de Roc Boronat, 116-126)



Multilayer is a three-dimensional video installation that creates a volumetric video. A technique that for the first time can be seen with moving image, in a dialogue between rhythm and space that takes a first step towards a new concept of holographic cinema. Welcome is a monochromatic film somewhere between semi-abstract graphic animation and fictional narrative, with a video denunciation background on the situation of refugees around the world.

Edat recomanada a partir de 7 anys.


Light Leaks


Pati de Can Framis
(entrada pel carrer de Sancho de Ávila)

Pati de Can Framis, Carrer de Roc Boronat, 116-126


Kyle McDonald i Jonas Jongejan

The mirror ball, an iconic light technology used in night clubs since the 1920s, becomes  a new kind of visual instrument that can transform our perception of space. Code artists Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan combine multiple projectors, a computer vision system and 180 kilograms of mirrored spheres to create a sophisticated choreography of reflections. 

As we enter the space, we find ourselves under a gleaming sculpture of mirror balls that instantly demands all of our attention. But as time passes by, we start to pay attention to the multiple reflections covering that cover every surface. They adopt different patterns and are organisedze in multiple configurations and geometries. With every different pattern, they transform the environment, making it sometimes medidative, and other times eerie.

“Light Leaks” has been shown in multiple countries in the last 5 years, in different various configurations, always different. Here, it is presented for the first time outdoors in an ambitious new version.
Kyle McDonald (US) is an artist working with code. He builds tools that allow artists to use new algorithms in creative ways.


Coloured Peonies

Carrer dels Almogàvers
(between Carer de Roc Boronat and Carrer de la Llacuna)



Giant white peonies have bloomed in Barcelona to give a touch of natural surrealism to the urban landscape of Poblenou. When night falls, the bouquets of flowers glow and reveal the magic of their nocturnal colours in a captivating, luminous symphony.

Chrysalis is an almost invisible being that comes to life at the dawn of night to offer a choreography made up of reflections, lights and concealments to the rhythm of music inspired by the ocean. A show that transports spectators to the depths of the oceanic abyss under the guidance of a reflective spherical organism, inspired by ctenophores, marine animals that have the capacity to generate light with movement.


Verd botella

UIC Barcelona School of Architecture


Plastic bottles for recycling and re-used Christmas lights are joining forces with the Jardí del Sol's climber plants to turn the party wall green that holds up this unique vertical and self-sufficient wall. Plastic abuse in our society can be seen in the number of bottles arising from selective waste collections, which are establishing a dialogue with existing solar panels, re-used lights and the garden itself, in a reflection on the importance of our actions in preserving the environment.

#boscnocturn #iaacllum2019 #IAACLife


Bosc nocturn creates the illusion of an artificial forest made of light whose aesthetic appearance changes depending on the direct interaction of the public by means of microphones placed in the windows of an old, ruined restaurant, of which only the façade remains. On the other side of the bars, the ground comes to life with a spectacular, illuminated forest constantly changing in appearance thanks to the voices of the spectators.

#Filsd’Història #lsarq

https://filsdhistoria.wixsite.com/filsdhistoria www.salleurl.edu

When we walk around Poblenou, we can be taken back decades in time to stroll among factories, imagine the sound of cars and machines, the smell of the smoke, and so on. The aim of Fils d’història is to remember this industrial past by retracing the history of an old industrial warehouse where Ducati motorbikes were repaired, creating a transparent cover made of thread to make people feel as if they form part of this past, day and night.

Torches are small everyday objects that give us peace of mind and which everyone should have stored away in a drawer at home. Who hasn’t explored a dark corner of their home or a hidden place in nature by torchlight? The Pockets is a giant-sized reproduction of old torches, which with their old-fashioned charm and colourful vintage colours illuminated the streets of neighbourhoods.

Jordi Canudas

Through vertical rotation, a pleated, twisted paper becomes the platform upon which the different colours of the light are mixed together to visualise all the hues in the chromatic range. Hue Twist is a contemplative piece that captivates, surprises and invites the public to sit down on one of the seats surrounding it and observe the non-stop colour changes.

Several buildings in Poblenou


Manolo Laguillo

The most representative emergency staircases in Poblenou become fascinating and enigmatic objects that every night, under special lighting, cast their shadows in a path contrary to daylight. These “turned” shadows contribute to evoking the neighbourhood’s industrial past and its political and social demands.


Next Nature

Rèquiem per una fàbrica

Carrer de Badajoz, 167

(Carrer de Badajoz, 167)



Until not many years ago, many outsiders perceived this neighbourhood to be the “Catalan Manchester”, in other words, somewhere full of chimneys, with workers heading towards factories in the early hours of the morning, or a fisherman’s neighbourhood set apart from the sea. Today, however, as a result of the major urban transformations of the time, the physiognomy of the neighbourhood is changing rapidly and, little by little, this is being left in the past.

Former Fàbrica Simon
(Carrer de Sancho de Ávila, 66-72)

Cantonada del c. de Pamplona amb el c. de Tànger

Estudio Antoni Arola with the collaboration and sound system of Lolo & Sosaku

Reflexions is an experimental project in which light is no longer used as a source of illumination and is valued for what it is in itself from the moment it is born, when it is transformed from a reflection or when it fades away. Somehow, we feel like the light gets away from us and transforms into something almost animated. Lolo & Sosaku share their ingenuity and poetry by making light interact with the sound of the installation.

Limited capacity.



Former Fàbrica Simon

Michela Mezzavilla - reMM

#Pulse897 is a light performance that transforms the window sills of the old Simon factory into a huge, dynamic light matrix. By means of replicating elements of light inspired by Simon’s famous 897 light switch, the façade becomes an iconic symbol of the interaction between people, light and sound. The installation evokes futuristic design sets from the 1960s, the period contemporary to the light switch and the building itself.

The Noctulica project explores the perception of light and reflects on bioluminescence, a phenomenon generated when an external element interacts with a live organism such as Noctiluca scintillans, a bioluminescent species of plankton. The light emitted by Noctulica scintillans is gentle: it illuminates the shapes in the water, generating a composition of light in constant movement that plays with our perceptions and the visual experience.

After the Can Picó building was renovated, it was converted into the cooperative Biciclot, which revolves around the world of the bicycle. Cyclus explores the relationship between the movement of a bicycle and the path of light, using the terrace of the building as a stage. This light choreography is a staging of the eternal pursuit of the tireless front white light by the flashing rear red light with the accompaniment of sounds reminiscent of the world of cycling.

The Off Llum BCN 19 is back. Discover an alternative itinerary put together by some of the members of Poblenou Urban District. As night falls, the neighbourhood's artistic and creative venues will light up the streets and present small-format light shows for the festival. 

Places that are usually closed to the public, such as the Palo Alto Foundation, will open their doors with light shows that will surprise their visitors. Art galleries and museums such as L&B, Manifest Destiny Art, La Plataforma, Chez Xefo and Can Framis will reinvent their exhibitions, adapting them for the Llum festival. Restaurants like El Quinto will serve up a combination of light and cuisine. Design and production studios such as Carpintectura, Nodo and Story will put their imagination on display, to the delight of passers-by.

Narrative, design and art come together for an itinerary that aims to showcase the latent creativity hidden behind the neighbourhood's walls. Illuminated retro structures, sculptures with video-mapping, illumination and audiovisuals will proclaim that Llum Barcelona is back in Poblenou once again.

The hidden face of Llum BCN 19 will be out on the streets, in everyday places that form part of the Poblenou neighbourhood.
