SOUTHAMPTON LIGHT FESTIVAL

On the 19th February, I went down to West Quay shopping centre to see the Festival of Light. The show was used to promote the completion of the new leisure complex. Featuring projections, displays and illuminations, the light show attracted hundreds of visitors each day.

The festival contained a variety of different installations and projections, which you can read about below:

‘Ocean of Light: Submergence’ by Squidsoup

Ocean of Light: Submergence is a highly evocative outdoor installation artwork by digital artists Squidsoup. The piece uses over 12,000 individually controlled lights suspended in space to create a volume of light that responds to your presence. It is an unforgettable and very striking experience; transforming physical space into a hybrid environment where virtual and real worlds coincide.

Here are some of my photos:

‘Light Form’ by QED productions and NOVAK

‘Light Form’ is a large scale audio-visual artwork influenced by patterns created in marine nature. This fluid and abstract form takes on many forms of texture and colour, creating a mesmerising display of projected light on to Southampton’s old town walls. The contrast between the old walls and modern illumination is striking.

QED Productions will bring Light Form to life using state-of-the-art high power projection technology, transforming the City’s ancient wall and the Esplanade with light and sound.

I’m really glad that I went to the Festival of light as it was so unique and creative. It’s a shame it was only on for a week though!

What do you think? Did you get to see the installations? Let me know in the comments!
