Light art during social distancing
As the world grapples with the Covid19 situation, you can always count on artists to lift up our spirits, and light art is no exception.
See what LUCI members have been up to to light up the world in small but important ways:

Creatmosphere presents Coin de Paradis
Laurent Louyer, of Creatmosphere, decided to start projecting images of nature, and then of artists, on the facade across from his appartment window.
The project has become a combination of showing gratitude to the health workers and an open air museum for a few local residents to enjoy during the French confinement period.
Check out daily projections of artworks curated by Laurent Louyer, visible at 21:00 CET

The City of Galway and Galway2020 present “Savage Beauty”
“Savage Beauty”, a light installation produced by Finnish artist Kari Kola, illuminated the Connemara mountains with 1,000 lights in March as part of the Galway 2020 programme.
Luminale goes digital
While the Luminale Biennial could not take place this year as planned due to the Covid19 situation, virtual versions of countless light art works and installations can be viewed on Luminale’s website and digital channels, under the hashtag #luminaledigital.
OCUBO brings light art to your window with Art2U
“Stay where you are, art is coming 2u” is the concept behind Art2U from OCUBO.
The project is an itinerant art installation with large-scale projections that aims to create a link between cultural creation and people from areas that have less access to the arts. A specially adapted mobile van travels through several areas of cities from the north to the south of Portugal, while different performances of different artistic areas are projected on several buildings of the city. The public can watch the projections from their window, or follow via live stream on OCUBO’s social media platforms. Art2U has traveled through Almada and will be in Lisbon for the second edition from 8 – 11 June 2020.
