Highlights of the Fête des lumières 2012 in Lyon

Posted on | December 11, 2012

‘La Fête des Lumières’ – the Festival of Lights – is an annually held event that takes place in Lyon, France.

The festival expresses gratitude towards Mary, mother of Jesus, on December 8 of each year. Every house places candles along the outsides of all the windows which has a beautiful aesthetical effect throughout the streets. The festival, which includes dozens of activities based on light lasted as usual 4 days, with the peak of activity on December 8th.

There were light displays projected onto iconic buildings and many light installations were mounted throughout the city. This was my third year at the festival and seeing the latest trends in light design from artists around the world influences my work and my knowledge tremendously.

The entire collection of installations with artists and the explanations behind the art work can be purchased on request at dk@cowsinjackets.com

Here a selection of my highlights upfront:
