Tomorrowland Unveils Intricate Mosaic Walkway: Look Inside the “Stairway to Unity”
Tomorrowland's unifying principles are being immortalized in tangible form with the advent of the festival's latest art installation.
Tomorrowland's last in-person edition in 2019 drew over 400,000 dance music fans collectively hailing from over 200 nations around the world. They hope to continue fostering that sense of belonging with the "Stairway to Unity," a 60-meter pathway composed of over five million mosaic tiles.
Cutting the tiles alone was a massive undertaking, explains mosaicist Jean-Christophe Duperron. Due to the manual nature of the process, each tile needed to be cut and adjusted individually, a process that by his estimates collectively represented over 15,000 hours of work. Duperron joined forces with fellow artist Michel Herrera Cuello and an Italian company, Mosaici Moruzzi, to complete the effort.
