MAXIMA LVX VIRIDITATIS (2017)
Light and data installation by the lakeside on the Italie boat, curated by FMAC
MAXIMA LVX VIRIDITATIS – The Montesinos Federation – Elena Montesinos, 2017
Geneva’s motto – “Post Tenebras Lux” (“after darkness comes the light”) – takes on its full meaning during the Geneva Lux Festival showcasing luminous art installations on the streets and certain buildings when the dark long winter nights are at their peak.
In 2017, TMF has been invited to insert an interactive artwork related to the one dollar bill iconography (a huge pyramidal blinking neon) and mass manipulation techniques including banking data such as remixed quotes and the daily currency change rate (¥€$) on the LED screening gate, like some kind of portal to a Brave New World.

In 2018, a different light installation was imagined for one of the most emblematic scenery of the lakeside: Les Bains de Pâquis.
