Earlier in the week I heard about the London Lumiere festival, and last night decided to go and check it out. It was absolutely freezing, and finishing work I headed down to Oxford Street to meet with some friends and do a circuit of the different installations. I was really shocked it was a lot busier than I thought it would be, but we managed to see the majority of what we had planned. My favourite by far was the one suspended over the junction of Oxford & Regent street, designed by Janet Echelman. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to make it down to the Leicester Square to see the garden of light, and the Aquarium by Benedetto Bufalino was closed off at Grosvenor Square. However what we did see was pretty impressive.
Stopping for a pint mid-way our final stop was Westminster Abbey, which was amazing, it was nice to see such an icon piece of architecture in a different light – excuse the pun. Sadly it was only on until this evening, which I think is a bit of a shame, as its the sort of exhibition which you could imagine lasting for a month or two – anyway if you missed it here’s a few images from last night.
