1.5 degrees
Eyesberg
Spain

28, 29 and 30 October
From 8pm to midnight

Alameda Castle District of Barajas

1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels is the temperature that separates us from a series of global climate catastrophes. Among these, is the disappearance of glaciers – natural structures that are essential to the stability of the planet’s climate. Using recordings of ice that interact with projections, lasers and LEDs combined with digital effects, this installation will transform the Alameda Castle into an immense iceberg of light and music. Realistic, profound textures and movements that capture the true beauty of these colossal masses of ice.

Eyesberg is a multimedia art studio with José Vaaliña at its helm. Its focus is the transforming of spaces into interactive and immersive art installations. Bringing ice to the forefront, this piece captures the grace of icebergs and invites us to reflect on their importance. The fact that these structures are at risk of disappearing is a cry for help that we must all respond to. Our only hope is to stop global warming by reducing CO2 emissions.

Location

Alameda Castle: one of the two medieval castles within the municipality of Madrid. It was built in the 15th century, most likely by Diego Hurtado de Mendoza. Underneath the castle lies a village that dates back to the year 2,000 BC, which was later occupied on various occasions during Roman and medieval times.
