Light festival in Gent, Belgium
I include some videos and pictures of the things that people could see. I hope you will enjoy it although, of course, it is not the same as seeing it live.
On the photos you can see more examples of how the building was illuminated. I find it impressive how the appearance of a building can change so dramatically with the use of light. This should be strong lights as I assume you can't have this effect using an ordinary desk light.
I visited this festival together with two friends, Kurt and Johan. Before going to the festival we had our dinner to have enough energy to withstand the cold as it was freezing. Then we were forced to walk to the city centre as the public transport didn't bring anyone anymore to the centre due to the large number of people already present. But then, it was worth visiting the city as these pictures demonstrate.
After the old post office we continued our journey through the city and we decided to go to the Vrijdagsmarkt (a large square) via a street where a large structure was installed build completely with lights. I felt as if I was a Maharajah walking in his colourful palace as the pictures demonstrate.
More things were happening in the city: people could project themselves over and over again on the wall of a church and this created the effect there were tiles against the wall. A little further, people and cats were projected on a building, "climbing" in and out of windows and annoying each other.
We saw a few more art pieces before we decided to have a soup in a bar. After the soup, Johan left because he had to drive back home in another town while Kurt and I tried to go for a drink in a bar but as it was cold and the bars we entered were full, we decided to go back to his place as my last train left long ago.
