REFLECTIONS Light Art Cubes Installation - Reflecting on the past, embracing the current, and focusing on the future. Reflections is an artistic installation that is comprised of 5 larger than life mirror cladded pillars, each one representing one decade of the United Arab Emirates, on the Eve of the 50th Anniversary Year. Each monolith reflects the surroundings of old Dubai while modernizing the current outlook for the future. History is the foundation of this nation and the expression of the vision of our forefathers. As this installation reflects the heritage buildings and the surroundings, it allows the guest to immerse themselves visually in the vicinity and create amazing selfie moments. Reflections is about breaking down the walls of the modern metropolitan landscape and reflecting on where we came from, our roots, and our heritage. Produced and Engineered by John Jossifakis, this concept was brought to life through the lighting design of George Tellos.
