Parabòlic is a semi-permanent installation at Antoni Gaudi´s architecture of the Palau Güell in Barcelona.
Implemented as an 11 minutes projection mapping of the parabolic dome in the main hall, the soundtrack is performed automatically by a real pipe organ.
The inspiration for the visual aspects of the installation come from a detailed analysis of the dome’s geometry. By analyzing Gaudi’s work we discovered that he was using a very mathematical yet organic strategy to tessellate an hexagonal tiling, which was giving as a result an infinity of implicit natural forms. Our approach was to make visible all this hidden structures. Using the hexagons of the tiling as a pixel unit, a sequence of scenes is deployed which explore this emerging organic forms.
