Street Artist converts mundane sculptures into giant audio equalizer bars at edge of a greenspace.
When you are one of the dance music capitals of the world, it will be evident on the street during the daylight too. And we’re not speaking specifically about the apparent glitter spill on the gas station floor this morning, or the blue-haired millennial sleeping on the bench at the bus stop.
Right now Ibiza has new audio equalizers popping up from the terra firma, thanks to the new red, green, and yellow stripes that stand at different levels in the air, a deliberate reflection of the control-room aesthetics that surround superstar DJs who rock the stages here almost every night.
The installation by AMADAMA is part of the BLOOP international Proactive Art Festival. He’s used to applying technology to his creativity and this guerrilla-style installation is anonymous to passersby. Veering away from the star-powered mural programs of recent vintage, organizers of BLOOP are stripping down and going minimalist – “(we’re) exhibiting open air installations and artworks in extremely visible points on the island just for the work to be seen.”
It is a refreshing return to the original spirit of Street Art, and club music for that matter, when the unpredictable eclectic nature of creativity was in full celebration and was unhindered by celebutantes, selfies, and branding.
