Idea for the Olympic flame lighting | Tokyo 2020.

COMPETITION

Project’s name: Crowd-lighting | Encendido colaborativo.

THE IDEA

Each assistant at Tokyo 2020´s Opening Ceremony “can be protagonist and participate” in the lighting of the Olympic flame torch.

The proposal combine three main aspects:
1. The tradition and history of Japanese culture.
In the center of the stadium will be placed the Olympic Cauldron, located on top of a Sphere of 15 meters in diameter (or a Cylinder of 15 meters of height) and covered with a world map digitally painted on a traditional japanese paper.

2. The modernity and technology of Japanese society.
Each assistant will have a “Laser pointer” that will project a ray of light over the Sphere (or Cilinder) that will light the flame of the Olympic torch located at its top.

3. The Olympic flame lighting should be a reflection of the times in which we live.
In an era in which social networks and technology unite us, “Crowd-lighting” proposes to reflect the philosophy of crowd; the collaboration and the collective participation of all people united by a common challenge.

 

 

“CROWD-LIGHTING” PROJECT IS BASED IN CROWD-PHILOSOPHY,
THE PHILOSOPHY OF COLLABORATING COLLECTIVELY

 

DETAIL.  LASER POINTER FOR EACH FOCUSED ASSISTANT IN THE DIRECTION OF THE OLYMPIC CAULDRON.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Olympic Cauldron, located in the center of the stadium, lights progressively with the strength of the “lasers pointers” that project the assistants, until finally the Olympic flame lights at the top.
