Commissioned by Tampa City Public Art Program to inaugurate Lights on Tampa, the artists chose the Tampa Bay Hotel, home to the University of Florida to experiment for the first time the 'enveloping technique', imprinting the architecture and surrounding urban space with light images. The imagery is part of an ongoing visual language that the artists create, according to each context and often with the participation of local residents. From the early ideograms signs imagined in Argentina, enriched overtime with metasocial signs, silhouettes, objects, images, and sounds that connect people and cultures.
