The international exhibition Expo 2017 Astana celebrated its inauguration this 7th June.
A THOUGHT ABOUT ENERGY OF THE FUTURE
It is at the opening ceremony of the Expo that our collective animated the futuristic and glimmering National Pavilion of Kazakhstan (main building of EXPO) constructed in the form of a 80 metre diameter sphere for about twenty minutes.
Our intention was to take the audience in a moving and extraordinary journey rich of colorful 3D illusions and impressive transformations with dazzling water, wind, fire effects.
The show was designed in two parts. The first one put the spotlight on Kazakhstan, its beauties and its diversities. The second one explored environmental issues linked to energy consumption on the planet but also the solution to face them that resides in energy of the future (topic of the exposition and Pavilion of Kazakhstan that is precisely introduced as “Museum of Future Energy”).
You will be able to discover five new works ensued from the first alternately every evening during the three-month Expo on the sphere of National Pavilion of Kazakhstan.
These mono-thematic 7 minutes long mapping performances focus by turns on topics covered throughout the ceremony show as solar, wind, hydraulic energy, bio-energy and particle physics.
