《天空中的露西亚》是Brut Deluxe受马德里政府委托而特别设计的灯光装置,旨在庆祝Gran Via商业街翻新工程的结束以及标志性道路的开放。

The light installation, denominated Lucia in the Sky is a site-specific design by commission of the City of Madrid for Gran Via coinciding with the termination of the refurbishment and partial pedestrianisation of the emblematic road and its inauguration.


The light installation is inspired by the images of the nebulae and galaxies realised by the Hubble telescope and the feelings that immediately associate at its contemplation: the hypnotic astonishment facing the immensity of space, the infinity of stars and possible worlds mixed with the recorded memories of the real contemplation of the milky way, also present but steadily further away and apparently unreal due to the lack of darkness of the night sky in more urbanised society each day.

Gran Via是一条呈东西向延伸的街道,艺术家在其上方覆盖以人造的星云和假想的银河,使它变得更加耀眼、缤纷和梦幻。露西亚是一只生活在Gran Via的小猫,会不时地出现在特定的地点,似乎想要捕捉一颗闪烁的星星。

Gran Via is orientated east – west and we cover the sky with an artificial nebula, an imaginary milky way, more brilliant, colourful and psychedelic. Lucia is a kitten living on Gran Via and, showing up only casually at determined spots, seems to be trying to catch one of the blinking stars.

The installation covers 1300m of Gran Via and is realised with bulbs with a total of 360 414 LEDs summing to an installed power of 31kW.
