A unique center for digital art “Pools of light” (Bassins de Lumières) in Bordeaux makes not only the area of 41 thousand square meters, but the water space: people moving along the boardwalk above the water surface, images are projected onto the wall 100-meter length and are reflected in the water, thus adding a new dimension of art and immersive experience to the viewer.
The newly opened art space are now displayed 40-minute programme about the work of Gustav Klimt and Paul Klee. Immersive movies go under “Magic flute” by Mozart.
New complex hopes to attract in the current year 400 thousand spectators. While e-tickets are sold on a ninety-minute slot, and luckily, they are buying. To obligati in vast spaces – what we need people who are within two months of quarantine was locked in four walls.
In 1941, after the occupation of France, a submarine base in Bordeaux built for the German fleet, then hid 15 submarines. The base was made to last and have not suffered from allied bombing. In peacetime it housed the ironworks, after which the place became an abandoned industrial area. The current owner, the company Culturespaces, it took 2 years and €10 million to put in order the premises to install 90 video projectors, 80 columns, and stretching 100 km of optical fiber. Culturespaces already has similar centers of digital art in Paris (l’atelier des Lumières) and the Cote d’azur (Carrières de Lumières). The centre opened in Paris in 2018 in the foundry of the nineteenth century. On the French Riviera, near the town of Baux-de-Provence, digital programs show in the stone quarry of the Val d Enfer. But new digital centre in Bordeaux at times more predecessors.
