Portuguese Laser Artists Opened a Cosmic Portal in a Parking Garage

Creators: Geometric laser projections of different shapes and grids are exhibited on the walls of the Silo-Auto car park for a new installation, Epicentro, by OpenField Creative Lab. The parking structure sits at the center of Porto, a coastal city in northwest Portugal approximately three hours from Lisbon by car. Silo-Auto itself is an example of brutalist architecture, a fortress-like style of design popular from the 1950s to the mid-1970s. It's become an iconic landmark for the city, so OpenField Creative Lab decided to create this installation to "transmit the pulse of everyday life," according to their description of the piece.
