Porta Estel·lar (the catalan for Star Gate), by PlayMID, is an immersive light and sound installation inside a plane. This video is a document of the set-up made on Barcelona’s Ciutadella park during september of 2015.
Through the creation of visual and sound sequences that suggest the idea of interstellar travel, audience flies to outer space in an intense trip, from departure and takeoff to the sighting of comets, planets, galaxies and alien worlds, until finally returning safe to earth.
The plane itself is an art project from Eduardo Cajal, http://www.trashumante.org/, who bought, transformed and adapted the plane to hold this kind of art performances inside it.
