Urban Sun by Roosegaarde cleans public spaces of the coronavirus by Studio Roosegaarde
"World's first Urban Sun cleans public spaces of the coronavirus for better human gatherings. Inspired by the light of the sun, and backed by scientific research that proves a new, specific light can safely clean up to 99.9% of the coronavirus, Studio Roosegaarde launches Urban Sun.
Daan Roosegaarde and his team of designers, external experts, and scientists challenged themselves to discover how the power of light can be used to combat viruses and therefore enhance our well-being. Research shows that though traditional 254nm UV light is harmful, the new far-UVC light with a wavelength of 222 nanometers can actually sanitize viruses safely. Urban Sun, a project in development by Studio Roosegaarde, shines a large circle of this far-UVC light into public spaces, cleaning those spaces of the coronavirus. It acts as an additional layer of protection to current government rules. Urban Sun aims to inspire hope. It combats the negative impact of social isolation by aiming to improve cultural gatherings, sporting events, public squares, and schoolyards."

Dawn Chorus by Urban Projections
"Dawn Chorus was created deep in the heart of Sherwood Forest during Covid-19 isolation. Urban Projections and Fabric Lenny collaborated remotely, in a process of play and experimentation. All characters were projected live in their environments with pico projection systems, no post production, with accompanying audio soundscapes captured in the woodland."

ESTRUTURA - SILO AUTO by OPENFIELD Creativelab
"“Estrutura” is a light and sound installation that explores the structure, the skeletton and other physical features of Silo-Auto (an expectant brutalist iconic building in Porto/Portugal). The installation sound was composed collaboratively by participants in three sound-capture workshops that took place previously in the same building."
