ART OF FREEDOM: THE POWER OF DIVERSITY Part 1.

THE POWER OF DIVERSITY

SZIGET Festival is not only a music but a colorful art festival. Year by year we can be the witnesses that creativity has no limits. This time will be the 6th when  Sziget Art Of Freedom project’s creators design the most amazing and unique buildings, statues, and installations. Check out the 2018 gallery and get inspired by Sziget’s unforgettable atmosphere!


Chilout Zone

Designed by: 3art

Concept -chillout area for visitors with a capacity of 90 seating. The Chilout Zone consists of artistic objects that are made from recycled material. The theme of the chillout zone is – WATER, LIGHT AND EMOTIONS


Bridge of Love

Designed by: Róbert Wahorn


The Star-faced shepherd

Designed by: Jap-Yap Team

The basis of our idea was to make such a point on the Sziget festivel, where the szitizen can chill at any given time of the day. The tone of the building comes from hungarian folklore, wich we tried to put into an up-to-date form. The concept is based on a stilized skull, of wich’s mood is broken by the colourful graphics.


Scout Castle

Designed by: Hungarian Scouts

This Scout Castle is meant to give insight into the world of scouting. This sculpture is made out of natural materials and consists of a community space, demonstrating over a 100 year old construction techniques related programs that come from community experiences.


Elektropus

Designed by: Tekla Fehérvári

This installation aims to raise attention to the backsides of the too quick progress in technology. The insane manufacturing of electronical gadgets and the pollutant effects of consumer society are getting much and much disturbing. Electronical waste grows three times faster than any other kind of waste. Built from electronical waste and living off a tree, Elektropus symbolizes the destructive technological progress that devours our natural environment. Don’t let the beast of modern technology to suffocate you as well!


Flowerbed

Designed by: KÉK

The FlowerBed is an architectural object, which is both a meeting place and a spot to rest. The floral form alludes to infinity and inclusiveness, everybody and anybody can find peace on the petals. Furthermore, the flower is the symbol of our colourful world: we are as diverse as the flowers, unique and one of a kind.


Galilei

Designed by: WIRE

Wire’s new project called „Galilei” represents human activity and its result while the previous installation „4 Square Round Forest” was inspired by the tension between natural and industrial world. The material and the form recalls the team’s original style while they aim at creating something new in Galilei. The cube outside is made out of wood while the globe inside is made out of metal. 4-5 people may be seated inside the globe who set the installation turning around by using their own manual power. This aspect symbolizes the importance of human power and knowledge: it may be the fuel of the modern world as long as it harmonizes with nature. The importance of equality in this situation can’t be underestimated – this is why the speed of globe is limited.


Locomotive

Designed by: Nyirán Márton

Our team’s main profile is the utilization of possibilities in recycled materials. The base of the locomotive is an empty and useless tank, which can be a spectacular spot of the festival thanks to its size and material. Szitizens can also climb up to the engineer’s cabin to shoot some pictures.


Fancy Fences

Designed by: Theoretics

String art pictures on the fences of Sziget Festival. It gives a positive and fun element to the the barriers which surround the Szitizens!


Hugwall

Designed by: Becker Dóra, Czikkely Anna, Hegedűs Ákos Márk, Orbán Dániel

There’s plenty of bad things in this world. We’re more likely to see that if we spill our coffee, find a hole in our sock, are running late and leaving our umbrella at home on a rainy day. There were and there will be a bunch of bad days like this throughout our life but with a bit of love we can turn the negative feelings around. Hug Wall tells a little story about how we can transform a rather terrible day with a hug. Walking from the left side to the right the picture changes, making the installation dynamic. Our piece with its strong, expressive colours and lovely style inspired by the love revolution and the fact that we must act to change the world around us.


Girl transformer

Designed by: Nyirán Márton

As part of the Love Revolution theme the girl transformer plan emerged. This gesture would represent Sziget’s diversity.


LoveHands

Designed by: Nyirán Márton

This sculpture is desgined from two hands that form a heart, representing love through symbols without having to use words. It’s meant to tie people together, no matter what language one may speak. It is the 21 century’s dove of peace.


Neon Figurative

Designed by: LedLightGroup

We aim to create a group sculpture of vibrant and luminous human figures. We’d like to portray these figures during an activity. It would be both entertaining and colorful at day and night.


Oazis

Designed by: Balogh Boglárka, Boda Zsófia, Magyari Zsuzsa, Pál Bella

The idea of our installation ‘Oasis’ was given by green springs which often appear like a mirage in deserts and the so called ‘one tree islands’ emerging from a river. They stand out from their surroundings, attract the eyes, and give a resting place for the tired traveller: they please functional and aesthetic needs. These buzzwords lead us to create the Oasis of Sziget. Oasis, because traversing ‘caravans’ can camp here; in the spirituality of the Island of freedom: It’s the meeting point of people arriving from around the world, it is an island in Sziget.


Piece of Peace

Designed by: Zala Zsófi, Tóth Ádám

Our aim was to provide a calm space for the szitizens where they can pull out of Sziget’s drift. The installation’s peaceful, surrounding interior space gives a chance to relax. The sitting area can take in a group of 6-8 people. The net fabric follows the shape of the body and filters the stimuli of the outside world.
