Lumiere London is a free light festival that takes place across London. I had the pleasure of visiting the Kings Cross location on Thursday with my friend Hazel.
As soon as we stepped out of Kings Cross Station you could see the crowds of people. The cold air hit my face and I wished I was back in the Caribbean again (Caribbean Christmas Post).
The first stop was called IFO (Identified Flying Object) which was a large rainbow colour lit bird-cage with a swing inside. The photo doesn’t do it justice.
The second stop was Lampounette which was a row of massive office desk lamps.
Third stop was called Waterlight. It reminded me of looking at the Northern Lights in Iceland. The artist was trying to portray a virtual flood. The colours were amazing and it was an interesting concept.
The next stop was a field of lights called Entre Les Rangs. The lights looked like lollipop sticks. You could walk around the field but it was too packed for us so we observed from the side.
The last stop for the night was called Aether which was a play of music and light. Music was played and the light moved to the rhythm. Very interesting and creative.
There were a total of 11 stops but we only managed to visit 5 as it was freezing and I didn’t think I would survive the rest of the night. I have never been so happy to get on the tube into the warmth.
Overall we both enjoyed the evening. It was something different to do and it was great to see so much creativity. Now to think of the next adventure. If you have any suggestions put them in the comment box below.
