A LIGHT JOURNEY ON THE MOON

For the second year running, the city of Metz has asked TETRO+A to light the Basilique Saint Vincent, now a cultural and heritage center. TETRO+A has invited the artist Guillaume Marmin to create a new installation that transcends the architecture of this building listed as a historic monument in Metz. Inspired by its columns, stained glass windows and Gothic style with a classical facade, the artist created the 1.3 SECONDE light installation to illuminate the heart of the basilica.

- CREATIVE WORK PRESENTED -

1.3 seconds is the time it takes light to travel between the Earth and the Moon at a speed of 300,000 km/s. This is the pulse - the driving heartbeat of the installation set up at the center of the Basilique Saint-Vincent. 1,3 SECONDE is a physical exploration of the links between light, time and space. An immersive device equipped with 250 projectors shines beams across the 50-meter nave to plunge visitors into light and sound compositions that sculpt the building’s spaces and play on the limits of our perception.

Peripheral lighting from 4-metre-high LED columns underscores the site’s architectural details to reveal the pylons, organ, arches and vaults.
