Hopeton01 - Lumiere (London)
What an excellent series of installations! We saw them on the 3rd of 4 days that they would be up - and Lumiere London did not disappoint!
My my Blip is of visitors bathed in light rays generated by 'Light Graffiti' experience in the Kings Cross/St Pancras area (for more info see: http://www.visitlondon.com/lumiere/programme/kings-cross/lumiere-artist-floating-pictures.) This particular item was wonderfully interactive, as you can see!
My extra picture is of the piece at Oxford Circus called '1.8 London' - the idea behind it is too long for here (read it here: http://www.visitlondon.com/lumiere/programme/piccadilly-regent-street-and-st-james/lumiere-artist-janet-echelman) Again, highly interactive and fun.
Lumiere has already been to Durham. Essentially, it is the art of light & shade served with sharp slices of imagination. Which city will be next to enjoy its delights?
Word for the day: 'chiaroscuro'
