Ballet Of Light

Uploaded by: galeao

Monday February 8, 2010

Vancouver, Canada

Caption: The 'Ballet Of Light', formally known as artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's art project Vectorial Elevation, consists of 20 robotically controlled, 10,000-watt Zenon lights that have been installed at Vanier Park and Sunset Beach in Vancouver. Beginning on February 5, they will be lighting the sky over English Bay every night until dawn, right up to the last day of the 2010 Winter Olympics on February 28. The pattern of the lights changes every 10 seconds in response to geometric designs submitted from the public via the Internet. It is quite a sight but works best with low clouds like this evening. View with the Inukshuk at the southern end of English Bay Beach.

Vancouver is one of my most favorite cities in the world. . .and I wish I could be there for the Olympics. I have loads of photos of the Inukshuk, but none quite like yours! Thanks for sharing.
