The UK’s largest light festival Lumiere London is returning between the 18th-23rd January with over 50 spectacular installations, to transform the city into a dazzling nocturnal art exhibition. The display is returning following the success of the first edition in January 2016, when it attracted an estimated 1.3 million visits.
The free-to-visit event invites everyone to witness the reimagination of London’s famous architectures and streets, created through the vision of leading UK and international artists. This year’s edition has an expanded footprint extending from King’s Cross, through Fitzrovia, Mayfair, and London’s West End, to Trafalgar Square, Westminster, Victoria, South Bank and Waterloo.
Discover Miguel Chevalier’s latest work, Origin of the World Bubble 2018, suspended high above Oxford Circus. You may recognise the display after it went rogue earlier on this month!
The interactive piece has been specially commissioned to fit the world-famous site, a key digital playground for pedestrians during the event. Suspended above iconic Oxford Circus, Origin of the World Bubble 2018 responds to the movements of the viewer below, transforming from black and white to vivid, colour-saturated visual experiences reminiscent of op-art and 1970s psychedelia.
The display is available to view from 5:30pm to 10:30pm.
