Light at the End of the Tunnel

Interactive light displays seem to be all the rage…

This past Saturday was Glow.  Located on the Santa Monica Pier, this free contemporary art exhibit of light was inspired by Nuit Blance in Paris.  One of the major highlights was Usman Haque’s Primal Source – an aurora borealis-type exhibit built out of a huge water spray screen with rear projected light patterns.  The changing display was controlled by crowd reaction and ambient noise caught on the microphones set up in front of the display.  If you are interested in seeing Primal Source in action, watch this video!

And last year, even God got in on this action with his own exhibit called Evoke.  A massive interactive light projection on York Minster’s western facade.  Can I get an AMEN?

    GLOW was an interesting event, good photo by the way. I hope this isn’t a comment that automatically goes up on your comment section because it really isn’t a good comment, it is more of an observation. Oh phewy! A simple comment turns into a ramble and then there you go. Can you email me any other GLOW photos you took of the installations or put them up on a flickr account to put them up on this blog? I left my camera in the rental car. my email is davelaughsalot@gmail dot com
