A story should be built up with light about memory and be represented in two historical and motivating contexts of Cologne. It is an ephemeral performance whose legacy is the record itself, a new memory. Explore the “peripheries” of the “formal” lighting project and reflect on memory as an intentional construction from the present, not as archeology.
Memory has two sets of components: those offered by the environment and those that provide different glances.

Colonia del Sacramento is declared as World Heritage Site by Unesco. The organizers of the meeting have proposed to leave as a legacy, the permanent lighting of two of its icons: the Bastion of Carmen and the Puerta de la Ciudadela. We invite you to participate in a project for three days to unveil the history and meaning of these spaces through light.
The group will receive a specific request to illuminate two buildings of heritage value in different parts of the city. A set of luminaires and a maximum period of time will be allocated so that the installation is installed on a temporary basis. The proposed design must contemplate that once the Encounter is finished, the luminaries will be installed permanently. An interesting and stimulating assignment with limitations of time, technical resources and times will be carried out.

How many times did the final result turn out differently than originally planned? We will present and discuss project solutions with the use of LEDs that were different from the initial intention: faults, surprises and adjustments made in different applications of this technology so that we can use it better in future projects. Faults, errors and surprises are common in projects that use LED technology.
However, most of these negative experiences are not shared, leaving many other projects and / or professionals at the mercy of similar problems. The objective of this workshop is to share the recurring setbacks to the application of luminaires and LED systems in different projects, presenting the solutions and corrections subsequently adopted so that we can avoid surprises in future applications.
