P-Cube consists of a 9 meters high, 9 meters wide scaffolding structure. Its surfaces are wrapped with a semi-transparent layer of fabric, providing a ghostly and ephemeral appearance during the daytime and becoming fully alive with light and projections during the nighttime.
The cube has been designed in a way that creates a gate in each of its 4 sides, providing an entry to the site and a meeting point for passers by. Two sets of stairways provide access to the public viewing platform located inside the cube at 6 meters high. The public viewing platform offers excellent views over the site and lets the audience be immersed in a digital world of light, movement, colour and shadows.
The digital component of the installation features a grid-like organism that slowly transforms the integrity of the cube through a series of morphological changes. P-Cube features a sound component specially composed for the occasion by local electronic musician Pixelord.
