Geo-Llum aims to reimagine the role of public lighting in green urban areas with a symbiotic relationship between the artificial and the natural world, focusing on a deeper understanding of microorganism community such as fundamental collaborators in the city ecosystem. Geobacters are the bacteria we are collaborating with, amongst others, because of their super capabilities of creating free electricity while bio-remediating contaminated soil. Geo-Llum is also included in the first bioremediation pilot program of the city of Barcelona in the Hort del Clot.

The project is an autonomous performative art piece conceived as an organic and growing being, where the role of humans is to take care of it, drawing attention to the different forces that play for its right functioning.
