Enjoy on-site light installations as part of the BGE Light Art Walk including:
Fireflies: Light City is pleased to feature the interactive artwork Fireflies by world renowned artist Cai Guo-Qiang as a special addition to this year’s BGE Light Art Walk. Fireflies was curated by Lance Fung of Fung Collaboratives for Light City. Fireflies is comprised of 27 illuminated kinetic sculptures. Over 900 handmade lanterns are attached to the top of 27 working pedicabs which may be used as transportation by festivalgoers between the Pier V Hotel and Harbor East (at the end of International Drive). Each lantern is handcrafted in Cai Guo-Qiang’s hometown of Quanzhou, China, drawing on memories of the traditional lantern festivals of the artist’s childhood.
Pulse Portal: Pulse Portal is a functional, 20-foot archway that welcomes viewers to pass through a gate of iridescent light on a journey into tomorrow. Made of shimmery dichroic plexiglass, its iridescent coloring makes it just as beautiful during the day as it is at night. Each viewer experiences a unique moment of exhilaration as they discover that the sculpture changes color based on where they are standing. Sunsets behind the portal make for the most dynamic photos. Look for Pulse Portal at the end of International Drive just outside of Wit & Wisdom at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore.
