Ambush #5: Pep Vidal

On Thursday 26 May, Eina Idea presents the fifth intervention of the Ambushes programme by the artist, physicist and mathematician Pep Vidal. Located over the felled tree in the courtyard of EINA Bosc, the intervention has the support of the Observatori Fabra, which has provided the irradiance data - amount of incident solar radiation per unit area - for the last twenty years of the tree's life. Based on this information, and through an electrical installation on the site, the intervention consists of a lighting simulation that traces the life of the tree and poses a conversation about the climatic contingencies, the material relations of the site, and its role in relation to the memory of the building.

The project has been carried out with the participation of EINA alumni Júlia López, Roger Monfort and Oriol Pinell, UAB student Carla Blanes, as well as with the complicity of meteorologist Alfons Puertas of the Observatori Fabra, and engineer Miguel Larrañeta, who has been able to simulate the irradiance of previous years through numerical algorithms.
