Collective operations for lighting interventions

1. AthiNeon, community light installation in urban space, June 2014-on site, Traces of Commerce, Stoa Emporwn, Athens

Beforelight group mapped, collected and re–purposed a number of old commercial light signs, with different constructive and operational characteristics, and created a temporary “museum” of light signs in the Stoa Emporon – Gallery of Merchants, reviving in an artistic way its old commercial activity.

2. Under a different Light, community light installation in urban space, November 2012-on site, Imagine The City – Syn-oikia Pittaki, Pittaki street, Athens

The citizens of Athens were asked to donate their old lighting fixtures to light up an abandoned street in Athens. The pendant lights were repaired, refreshed and spread along the side of the road, transforming Pittaki street into a homely space. This light installation created a new urban destination by changing the character of the entire neighborhood.
