I've saved the sunset for you

This Portuguese artist recently often deals with projects that with their presence address the question of cohabitation of ephemeral and temporary artistic creations in urban spaces. He's interested in exploration of such interventions on the spectator's perception of public space. The impressive 'site-specific' sculpture, built in Ljubljana by Bahna using pieces of wood, evokes a presence of a Sun that never sets. With the illuminated wooden structure, whose appearance is defined both by non-material (light) and material elements (wood), the artist tries to re-create a permanent sunset, a street simulacrum of a natural phenomenon. The main element of the light sculpture is thus hidden in the entanglement of organic textures, patterns and shapes that conjure a thrilling light experience for the spectator.
