Thessaloniki was one of the cities involved in the frame of “Imagine the city” action. The “Spiralight Hangarden” was the hanging bright garden that “illuminated” those cultural activities with its prehistoric harmonic coil shape which was a significant mark and symbol of the Ancient Greeks.
the secret recipe
Motorbike tyres, led lighting and resistant plants formed the secret recipe of this installation. The lights can be turned on automatically while the plants can be watered in the same way too. The seasonal change with monochrome or colorful plants can change each time the decoration look.
spiral shape symbolism
Spiral shape and vortex are eternal symbols of life’s dynamics. Spiral movement is met continuously in nature: from the formation of tornadoes to that of galaxies. Spiral shape is found anywhere around: shellfish, mollusc shells, fingerprints and even DNA molecules follow the harmonic spiral shape.
They depend on the area that we want to cover. The certain lighting installation covers an area of 7m x 7m, with a depth of 18cm. Tyre D=60cm.
