10 Most Surreal Light Installations at Lyon’s Festival of Lights
The Festival of Lights in Lyon, France (or Fête des Lumières) kicked off on December 6th bringing with it dazzling light displays by artists from around the world. “Every year we ask the artists to propose their concepts based on locations,” explained Jean-François Zurawik, General coordinator of the festival to Euronews. “We ask them to use the city as a huge backdrop, and to make proposals for parks, buildings, theaters, town hall, etc,” he said. By the end of it, between three and four million visitors are expected to have walked around the French city to see the highly impressive light installations, which this year include 80 works by 120 designers.
