LYON FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS - 06 > 09.12.2013
FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
Each year, Lyon’s traditional Festival of Lights attracts nearly three million visitors who come to view the approximately 100 art installations that take over the city for several days.
Tetro was a producer for GRID, a monumental kinetic light show created by the Berlin-based artist Christopher Bauder of WhiteVoid.
Showcasing to great effect the Hôtel de Région’s architecture by Christian de Portzamparc, GRID is a light structure composed of 50 triangles, each made from 150 motorized bars of LEDs and suspended in air to form a massive dynamic grid that extends 22 metres in length.
Morphing from straight lines into diagonals and diamonds, GRID comes alive to the rhythm of contemporary sounds from two musical ensembles: the 45 choral singers with the Concert de l’Hostel-Dieu performing the Bach tribute Immortal Bach, arranged by Knut Nystedt; and Robert Henke’s score of electronic music.
