DIALOGUE is a luminous exchange between two of the most recognizable towers of Riyadh’s skyline: Kingdom Center Tower and Al Faisaliyah Tower. In this discussion light takes the place of words as a means to express feelings and impressions. As if they have a life of their own, the two towers appear to sense each other and express themselves in ways akin to Morse code or semaphore flags. Each luminous color takes on a meaning to translate moods, feelings, emotions, and personality traits. DIALOGUE is conceived as an ode to the power of communication: a celebration of diversity and creativity between individuals as well as between nations.
Watch the beautiful interplay of laser beams between Al Faisaliah and Kingdom Towers. And make sure to listen to the synchronised soundtrack. The best vantage points are in downtown Olaya or on King Fahad Road – or see it all from anywhere in the city up to a distance of 10km.
