As in other years, this year is also the unique facade and environmental lighting of the Latvian National Library this year.
Cabinet of ministers in Latvian colors
In the project of lighting the Cabinet of Ministers of the building "Wake up!" A popular artist in Latvia has come to the fore, who witnesses to our – every Latvian citizen – responsibility for himself, his people and his country. It will have a unique, rhythmic lighting and music interface that will impress every viewer.
"Lighting" on the Esplanade
An electric object invites you to observe how the sound turns into light. The sound of the festival's visitors will be transformed into light and today, in the direction of the National Library in Latvia, will be celebrating the city of Light. Why to Go Since "Skaņgaisma" has become part of the power project "Ezine" 100, which has been in Latvia for 100 years.
Each year everyone had the opportunity to sang their favorite Latvian songs and give them to Latvia. "Lightness" is the last opportunity to record your vote in history in centuries and send it to Latvia. At the end of November, the National Library of Latvia will present a digital song at www.zdziedam100.lv, where our children and grandchildren will be able to find and listen in the future.
"Soul mirror" in the Jahn Rozentāls square
Within the framework of the "Old Riga" project, the Jaan Rozentāls exhibition will feature an exhibition of art pieces by Elijah Patmalniece with light elements.
This year, for the first time at the "Old Riga 2018" light festival, a light story will be shown on the front side of the Central Bank of the Latvian Bank on the street Valdemare 2A. The story of the central bank of Latvia will tell in an exciting 3D projection – a coincidence of circumstances, forces and developmental events that enabled the state of Latvia and later its financial system; what every day represents the work of banking Latvia today and tomorrow; what is the connection of the popular poet Rainin with gold and a symbol, sometimes referred to as Milda?
Zirgu Street will actually come from one world or another – an expanded reality that becomes visible on smart devices with SAN software. The road section with light wall portals from Liv Square to the Dome Square will turn into a virtual future city without restrictions on the imagination of architects and citizens. There are several kilometers high on the building, normal gravity rules do not work and it is possible to enter other newly created virtual worlds that exist parallel to the real.
In addition to the Saeima house, it is the only visual proof that the central part of the light object "On the Latvian Cradle" – photo by Viļe Rīdzenieks "Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia on November 18, 1918 in Riga", which eventually became a symbol of the founding of our country.
