Organic fireworks SPARK Bilbao illuminates the city as a new sustainable celebration.

Artist Daan Roosegaarde became inspired by the magical light of fireflies, and the desire to update the ritual of fireworks. The result is SPARK Bilbao, a poetic performance of thousands of biodegradable light sparks which organically float through the air. SPARK inspires visitors to wonder and reflect.

The Wellbeing Summit for Social Change on 1-3 June 2022 in the city of Bilbao-Biscay, Spain, is the first in the world to showcase this innovative solution for sustainable community celebrations.

SPARK Bilbao transforms traditional and polluting methods of celebration, such as fireworks, balloons, drones and confetti into a new sustainable celebration. Through a combination of design and technology, thousands of light sparks made of biodegradable materials are moved silently by the ever-changing wind; inspired by fireflies, flocks of birds and the galaxy of stars.

In Bilbao’s central park, this 50 x 30 x 50 metres cloud of SPARK inspires visitors to wonder and reflect on their connection to each other, themselves and nature. SPARK Bilbao will be exhibited from 1-3 June 2022 in Bilbao-Biscay, Spain, and is now launched as a movie premiere.

SPARK Bilbao invites everyone to become part of the journey to an environmentally-friendly future. With SPARK the interconnectedness between humans and nature is celebrated, and traditions can be maintained in a new way. Moreover, it is a sustainable alternative for community events that want to promote reflection and celebration, such as the Olympics, Fourth of July, New Year's Eve or other communal celebrations.

"Celebrations are an important moment for communities to gather together and cherish their cultures. SPARK Bilbao evokes a child-like wonder which reconnects communities." - Corinna Otto, Museum director Draiflessen Collection and curator of The Wellbeing Summit

“For many people the current situation feels restrictive, and traditional fireworks are getting prohibited everywhere. SPARK Bilbao is a place of wonder which triggers reflection and shows a new sustainable alternative of celebrating together.” - Daan Roosegaarde, artist
