EOLICA (Spanish for "wind") is an interactive installation developed for Llum Festival 2020 in Barcelona. It transforms people's breath into light energy that activates an urban lot and the railways. Citizens become agents of space transformation. The installation is activated by people playing with pinwheels while their rotations get measured by an IR sensor. The pinwheels' RPM gets translated into the light that will flow from the viewer towards the back of the site in gentle waves that use a sine curve to generate the path on the warped grid of led bulbs.
