The large-scale kinetic light installation “Empyrean” was created as a stage design for the event 59 ° 57 '/ 30 ° 19' by Roots United, which took place on Oct. 19th, 2019 at the Mutabor club in Moscow.
The idea and name for the installation is based on the Empyrean, an ancient cosmological image of a higher heaven filled with light and flames. This is a place occupied by celestial bodies consisting of pure light that exist in constant motion while simultaneously being at eternal rest. The installation uses 216 moving luminaries to depict this abstract cosmological world, descending down to the earthly world – in this case the dance floor – from which we can observe the heavenly harmony above.
