This weekend in Brussels, there is a festival of light going on called “Bright Brussels”. Lately a frigid air from Siberia extends the cold winter in Europe. Temperature has been below zero for a couple of days already. Hopefully the colourful lights can bring warmness in such a fierce weather.
A handful of playful and artistic light installations can be found all over the historic heart of Brussels city, from Saint Catherine Square to Yser Square. Those installations are created by talented artists from different European countries. Each light installation is built next to a historic architecture and the light show on it is displayed with themed electronic music accompanied. My favourite installations were the illuminated balloons and the light reflections that imitated the northern lights, which feels like walking under the colourful aurora.
I’ve made a video of those light installations. It was frozen, yet I felt cheerful and excited to see these lights.
