Joana Vasconcelos' Collection

Pop Galo: Five Compositions for Sound and Light is an interactive site-specific sonic and luminous artwork, created by Jonas Runa for Joana Vasconcelos' Pop Galo (a monumental sculpture inspired by the Rooster of Barcelos - a popular Portuguese ceramic piece - covered with ceramic tiles and punctuated with LED lights of different colors - green, yellow, blue and red). Jonas Runa has created five different compositions of light and sound, four of them are individually associated with each of the four colors of the sculpture; and the fifth assumes the simultaneous interconnectivity of the four colors. The public can activate any of the five compositions when close to the sculpture.
