Lumiere London took place around the Capital weekend; this is not to be confused with Diwali because there was no curry to be found down in Regents Street. Sadly.
The various exhibitions dotted about town were a genuine delight; I also thought it was very cool to see a very strong showing from indigenous Londoners amongst the massive crowds who had turned up for a mooch.
Must have been too cold for the Russians!?
The exhibits varied greatly; elaborate projections onto buildings, a garden of light in Leicester Square and an island of household rubbish in Trafalgar square were all very thought provoking.
I think my favourite ‘piece’ was the CGI elephant on the giant LCD screen; it looked so realistic and the various elephant noises that boomed out the speakers gave it a presence that I did not expect!
