Light Installation

‘Northern Lights’ in my (Australian) city

Just last month, the city of Adelaide held its Festival and a highlight for me was the Parade of Lights which illuminated the historic buildings along North Terrace.
But one installation shone more brilliantly within this colourful and light-filled setting … a representation of the Northern Lights.
Dan Acher’s Borealis was projected outside the State Library with a series of high-powered laser beams using light, water and air. The Swiss artist created colourful sky projections which shone beams of light onto particle clouds invisible to the naked eye. The light show always changes, depending on the weather, so it really simulates the famous lights of the northern hemisphere.

Because the lights are constantly changing, it was easy to be captivated – even spellbound – by the effect but I did snap some photos of this luminous display.
