London's Lumiere Light Festival
Several light artworks and audio-visual installations popped up across the capital over the weekend for Lumiere London. The popular event drew huge crowds and garnered lots of press and social media coverage.
American artist Janet Echelman's giant, billowing woven sculpture above Oxford Circus was a highlight. The 1.8 installation was suspended between four buildings at a crossroads and illuminated with multicoloured projections at night. Viewers controlled the visuals using a smartphone app as the ultra-light structure gently rippled in the wind.

Other installations included British digital art studio Field's kinetic audio-visual piece built from reflective materials; French-Korean artist Tae gon Kim's shimmering, ethereal dresses made from fibre-optic cables; plus large-scale projection mapping on iconic buildings, and a computer-generated moving elephant.
