The Dream City

The Dream City was designed to stimulate imagination by encouraging the audience to interact with the installation.

30 tons of coloured quartz sand in a distinctive and interactive element; spectators walk on the installation, preferably barefoot, mixing the colours around the edges. This allows to create new primary colour combinations e.g. on the boundary of red and blue, violet will emerge, yellow sand mixed with red produces orange, and so on.

As time passes, various spots are mixed and lose their intensity, while simultaneously creating new composition of colours, producing all combinations of the light spectrum, starting from primary colours.

These colourful sand concepts may be used as benches to enjoy and experience. Sand gradation ranges from 0, 5 mm to up 3 mm so it appeals to the sense of touch, along with a visually appealing design.
