Pulsing with colours of the spectrum

ARTIST Peter Meluzín has brought Bratislava closer to cities like Italian Roma or Spanish Seville which had invited artists to decorate their facades with lights. Meluzín designed an artistic LED illumination of pulsing colours of the spectrum garnishing the façade of the Kunsthalle in Bratislava’s Old Town.

This way Bratislava has gotten a new dominant feature activating the face of the SNP Square.

Meluzín, when working on his design called PULZARt and using the same technology, had in mind that Kunsthalle shelters a number of artistic efforts, directions and waves.

“Elements of the spectrum pulse, expand and contract – and by this they symbolise variable artistic trends,” said Meluzín as cited by the Sme daily. “Along with this the whole spectrum symbolises that Kunsthalle shelters all the streams.”  

The lighting was symbolically switched on by Culture Minister Marek Maďarič and Michele Bologna, director of external relations at Slovenské Elektrárne on March 24.
