Back in January, I posted a piece on the e-Luminate Cambridge Festival and tonight it opened, with fabulous light installations illuminating some of the city’s most iconic buildings.
It’s a really cold night here in Cambridge but I wanted to get some photos, just taken on my phone, to give you a flavour of the event.
Firstly, Senate House with its installation “I See”, created in collaboration with The Ordered Universe Project.
In Bene’t Street, another moving image projection, “Bright Lights – The Colours of the Brain”, has been created by artists working with Cambridge community groups in a series of workshops.
Gonville & Caius College is looking glorious with its installation “The Colours of Caius College” created by artist Patrice Warrener using the Chromolithe technique that he developed thirty years ago.
At The Fitzwilliam Museum, projection artist Ross Ashton has created a colourful projection which shows some of the most iconic artefacts held in the Museum’s collection.
You’ll find more installations outside King’s College Chapel, at Trinity Hall and at the Guildhall. Full details of all these are on the event website. It may be freezing out there but it’s really worth wrapping up and getting out to see the city in a whole new light.
Well, we’ve almost got through a very grey and murky January so here’s the what’s on listing for February. It’s an eclectic mix of events that come to my attention so if you know about an event that could be included, please get in touch via my Contact page. I’ll update this listing through the month, so it’s worth checking back every so often.
