As in other years, this year the facade and environmental lighting of the Latvian National Library are extremely awaited.
Cabinet of ministers in Latvian colors
In the lighting project of the Cabinet Cabinet, "Wake up!" A popular artist in Latvia became involved, proving that every resident of Latvia is responsible for himself, his people and his country. It will have a unique, rhythmical interface of light and music that will impress every viewer.
"Lighting" on the Esplanade
The electric facility encourages people to observe how the sound turns into light. The sound of festival visitors will be transformed into light and the Castle of Light will be glorified towards the National Library of Latvia. Why it is worth to go Because "Skaņgaisma" has become part of the "Ezine" 100 electricity project, which is created as a gift for Latvia for a hundred years.
Throughout the year, everyone had the opportunity to sing their favorite Latvian songs and transmit them to Latvia. "Lightness" is the last chance during the celebration of the century to record its voice in history and give it to Latvia. At the end of November, the digital song on the website www.zdziedam100.lv will be presented to the National Library of Latvia, where in the future you will find and listen to our children and grandchildren.
"Mirror of the soul" at Jahn Rozentāls square
As part of the project "Old Riga" at Jaan Rozentāls Square, it will be possible to see the installation of works of art with elements of light by Eliasz Patmalniec.
This year, for the first time at the festival of light "Staro Riga 2018", a light story will appear on the front of the Central Bank of Latvia at street K. Valdemara 2A. The history of the Central Bank of Latvia will be told in an exciting 3D projection – the convergence of circumstances, strengths and achievements that enabled the state of Latvia, and then also its financial system; what each of us means today the work of the Bank of Latvia; What is the relationship between the folk poet Rainin and gold and the symbol, which is sometimes beautiful, also known as Milda?
Zirgu Street will come from one world or another in reality – augmented reality that becomes visible on smart devices using the SAN application. The section of the road with portals with bright walls from Liv Square to Dome Square will turn into a virtual city of the future, with no limits on the imagination of architects and residents. On the building there are several kilometers, the normal principles of gravity do not work, and you can get to other newly created virtual worlds that exist parallel to the real one.
Next to the Saeima house, the only visual testimony of the proclamation is the central luminous object "In Latvia cradles" – photo Viļa Rīczynks "Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia on November 18, 1918 in Riga", which became the symbol of our country's establishment over time.
