During the four days of Festival of Lights in Lyon, there were 62 listed shows or exhibits scattered around the city. We spent the weekend of December 8-9 in Lyon (see earlier post here).

Many of the buildings were lit up, some had projected static images, and a few played moving video clips. Théâtre des Célestins was the site of a show called “Lumieres Archipicturales” which was based on the idea of an artist working on the facade as if it is a painting.

Here is a short segment of the animated show with music. My fingers were frozen towards the end.

This video is about a minute long but the entire show is about 5 minutes.

The show was being repeated continuously so there was a constant flow of people.

Our friend F who went to school in Lyon wanted to see this particular exhibit despite the crowds.

The small garden with a fountain in front of the theater was packed with people.

In a nearby area, we saw the Corazon (Heart) at the Place de la Bourse.

The bars of light on the heart change with the sound of a heartbeat.

This is Rue de la Republique which is one of the main streets for shopping that runs through the city.
