The competition calls for all interested artists, designers, and architects to submit a proposal for an outdoor site-specific art installation at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP). The competition aims to find an attractive and inspiring lighting solution to illuminate the CCP Liwasang Asean Park for the 2016 holiday season. The installation must be innovative and unique, and must reflect the theme of “Paskong Pinoy”. Sound elements may be included as well. The installation may be of any material, but must be resistant to the elements, require no maintenance, and be safe in a public outdoor setting that includes active pedestrian traffic and exposure to weather conditions.
The temporary installation should include the Omni logo and should make use of Omni electrical and lighting products. A list of existing materials such as weather-proof sockets, par lamps and LED bulbs will be provided to interested applicants, which can be used for the installation. Applicants will also be required to use and modify an existing metal tree structure that is 50ft tall and 20ft wide. A layout of the structure may be requested and an ocular can be made prior to the submission of proposals. Entries must be suitable for display in a public outdoor setting and must last for the entire exhibition period (November 2016 to January 2017).
Omni through the Cultural Center of the Philippiness shall provide a grant of four hundred thousand pesos (Php 400,000) to help defray costs of professional fees, materials, preparation and fabrication of modular elements, its transport to and from the CCP, the mounting of the art installation at the above mentioned site, and its removal after the end of the exhibition period. CCP will provide limited assistance and machinery, if necessary, but the proponent must direct the installation and removal, and provide any specialized hardware required. The metal structure and the Omni products will remain the propertyof Omni electrical and lighting after the end of the exhibition period.
