OVO - Lyon, France


OVO is an egg-shaped art structure that concentrates, magnifies, and diffuses positive energies while appealing to multiple senses. Created by ACT Lighting Design and sculpture specialist Odeaubois, OVO’s illuminated portion consists of ultra-bright, fully-customizable Dot XL-6 RGB, programmed to communicate visual and acoustic animations. This dynamic installation is a combination of 24 crossed spiral structures based on the Golden Proportion found in the universe, such as in DNA helixes.
When visiting the installation, guests walk across a 100-square meter basin covered with two centimeters of water to reach the interior. The basin is covered with a black rubber surface that animates the wet surface with reflections of the egg-like sculpture, colorful light from the Dot XL-6 RGB, and the silhouettes of visitors. A vaporization system is fitted inside the structure diffusing a fine cloud of mist that spreads, crosses, and blurs the contours of the egg, and allows the colorful illuminations to play off of the vapor.
The dynamic lighting system supplied by Traxon & e:cue, uses only about 700 watts of continuous power to deliver stunning lighting effects. Each individually-addressable Dot is IP67-rated and consists of high-performance LEDs, which project upward to light each diamond formed by the structure. OVO was publicly unveiled for the first time at la “Fête des Lumières” in Lyon, France, December 8-11, 2010.
