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?

My fourth installment of All Things English… 

I had a feeling this would become a trend given peoples reactions to my previous post Tide Chandelier


This, my friends, is literally glowing trash art… a.k.a. another trash chandelier.  And once again, it looks pretty cool. 


This design is by David Batchelor, who although actually Scottish, lives his life as a sculptor, artist, writer and currently tutor at the Royal College of Art in London.

You were wondering how I was going to make this English, weren’t you?  Yeah, me too!
