Lumiere London 2018
January 18 - 21, 2018

The UK’s largest light festival transformed London’s iconic architecture into a dazzling nocturnal art exhibition.  Visitors could explore over 50 installations in six locations across the north and south of the River Thames. Light installation Northern Lights was placed in the classical setting of the Grosvenor Square in Mayfair area.

Northern Lights brings to life the spectacular natural light phenomenon occurring in the northern hemisphere's sky with a carefully programmed light story performed through 100 vertically positioned light lines, each equipped with LEDs. The dynamic movement of these lights evokes a mesmerising and poetic sensation, which interacts with its immediate surroundings. Like the real dancing lights of aurora borealis, a shimmering glow arises in an unpredictable flow of movements, occasionally vanishing and suddenly reappearing to drift in a different pace, size and colour, through the void.

Lumiere London 2018 was commissioned by the Mayor of London.

Northern Lighs was realized in collaboration with Amsterdam Light Festival.
