Porta Estelar was a temporary installation in 2015 in Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona. The installation consisted on a part of a plane fuselage which inside contained a reflective floor and 200m of LED lights installed in the ceiling. The idea was to create an immersive experience and transport the user to outer space. To create the illusion a 2d video is created with the light program on Cinema 4D and then it is mapped to the lights through “pixel mapping”. The sound is then paired with the light show to create the entire experience.


Playmodes, the developer, is an audiovisual studio based in Barcelona.
