On the occasion of the International Day of Light, May 16th 2020, the organisers of the Brixen Water Light Festival powered by Durst have send a signal of hope and confidence with an exclusive artistic performance. An artistic performance by the Italian artist Stefano Cagol took place at 5 am on the Cathedral Square in Brixen. Just when night gives way to day, Cagol lighted sea torches, which immersed the entire square in a red light.
Through this universal signal of emergency call, presence detection and active communication, the artist draws attention to the current time marked by the pandemic and immediately sets a sign of hope. "Signal to the Future" is based on a minimalist, quiet, but extremely present and refined light effect, which, through nautical distress signals in the hands of the artist, becomes a social and at the same time artistic statement.
