become_an_angel_reda_perez_tjiu.jpg For Milan’s Light Exhibition Design (LED) festival three groups of Interior Design Master students from the Scuola Politecnica di Design lit up the city.

Above, an installation called Diventa un angelo, “Four swings, featuring wings on each rope, invite everybody to have fun, generate energy and lighten his own wings, to fly for a few minutes and leave the stress behind.”

“Light up yourself” is an interactive installation, a seesaw equipped with lights on both ends, “Every time one end of the seesaw touches the ground, it activates a switch lightening the opposite end of the seesaw. Mettiti in luce wishes to involve passers by, make them stop, play and reflect on the fact that one person’s action influences the other, creating and transmitting energy. The seesaw, as interpreted in the “Mettiti in luce” installation becomes a metaphor for relation, socializing, interaction between people.”

“Switch” was a light installation fitted onto one of the most important bridges of Naviglio Grande, “the most ancient canal in Milan marking the town’s history, Accendi il tuo Naviglio enlightens the architecture with colours and shades. Through a sliding handle the passers-by can choose the colour of the bridge and the intensity of reverberation on the water beneath.”
