About the project

“HELLO HALL. DO YOU READ ME, HAL?" “AFFIRMATIVE, DAVE. I READ YOU.”

THE LEGENDARY CONVERSATION FROM STANLEY KUBRICK'S FILM : 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, GAVE US THE IDEA TO EXPLAIN THE ROUTING OF THE LIGHT FESTIVAL GHENT. 

QUOTES FROM WELL-KNOWN GHENT RESIDENTS GUIDED PEOPLE  THROUGH THE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. TOGETHER WITH FISHEYE WE DEVELOPED 52 LIGHT BOXES THAT WERE PLACED GUERRILLA-STYLE AT WELL-KNOWN PLACES THROUGHOUT THE CITY. IT WAS A SUBTLE LIGHT INSTALLATION, IN CONTRAST TO THE OVERWHELMING PROJECTIONS.  THE LIGHTBOXES WERE PICKED UP ON SOCIAL MEDIA EVERY TIME ONE WAS FOUND. IT BECAME A GAME OF HIDE AND SEEK. MISSION SUCCEEDED. IN COLLABORATION WITH JOHANNES ELEBAUT, COPYRIGHT BY STILLE BLIKSEM.
