Lights in the city
Last sunday I went to Ghent with a friend to see the festival of lights. This is the second time that Ghent is the stage for all different kinds of light installations. I made a short film with some of my favorites and others who caught my attention. Unfortunately my Nikon 1 isn’t the perfect camera to film with in bad light conditions. But it’s good enough to show you guys a glimpse of the festival. I have to admit that I was surprised by the light sensitivity of the camera. I’ll show you the results of the photos later in a review about my Nikon 1. Yes, I know, I love my Nikon.
Both very modern and in sync with the music. The first one made a 2D drawing come to life by adding shadows. It was amazing how they created the illusion of a 3D art piece. The thing I liked the most about Perspective Lyrique was the interaction between the building, the music and the light effects. I’m sure I would have liked the show of Mr. Beam but there was such a huge line. So we skipped it.
La Cabine Téléphonique Aquarium really caught my eye. Everybody tried to see the fish from close-by so I ended up standing on a bench to have a good look. If you think about it, it was such an odd piece of art.
To come to my conclusion: see you next year Ghent, I loved it.
