Sister event to OSLO LUX, Wellington LUX (in Wellington, New Zealand) is now underway with some 25 works of light art on display, mainly outdoors! Among them, this fine work by French duo Nonotak.
The 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Lux continues to make waves. Our New Zealand sister event Wellington Lux is shaping up nicely for 21-24 June – both Ruairi Glynn and Kimchi&Chips are heading out for the event, together with Cornelia Erdmann, Pierre Proske and many more to be announced. Get down there if you can!
Also: Submergence, the Squidsoup installation shown at ROM as part of LUX, is now on show at Mapping Festival in Geneva. And Aurora Nebula, the projection onto lycra installation by Pretty Concrete, will be exhibited at this year’s Hove Festival.
We have a video and stills of the event coming soon but, in the meantime, this is something very special from Fontourist – also of this parish – the fifteen talks of the day each boiled into a single image. Fantastic!
Thank you sir – we salute you! xxx
