“Miralls” is an ephemeral light installation located in the Recinte Modernista de Sant Pau (Barcelona), UNESCO World Heritage Site and Place of Cultural Interest. “Miralls” presents a multiplied reality of the vaulted space of the Sant Pau Hospital, transforming the space through the interplay of lights and reflections. The installation of a horizontal reflective surface creates the sensation of weightlessness above the vaults, giving a thrilling sensation of floatability. The combination with similarly reflective vertical planes enhances the concept, transforming it into an infinite, levitating space. This establishes a continuous interaction between users, the work and the building itself, making viewers interact with the space, and turning them into an active part of the work: their position within it, their movements, the lights, their reflections, their actions… progressively generate and create different dreamlike interior worlds.
