Light and street

Soy Cámara online

Script, production and editing: Daniel Pitarch, Marcel Pié and Roc Albalat / Taller Estampa

Language: Spanish

Duration: 17 min.


A flashing history of the uses of light in public space, taking in both street lighting and its relation with safety, and commercial uses. The homogeneous light that seeks a night without shadows and the heterogeneous lights of electric nights. From the electrical fantasies of the 19th century to mappings, from the lighting extravagancies of optical sights to the mediatic façades of contemporary architecture. Luz y calle describes the fascination with light as an illusory resource, starting with its imprint on popular culture.
