With London crashing into Tier 4 for Christmas, we’ve never needed a bit of seasonal cheer more, and this light show by the Southbank Centre certainly managed to lift the spirits.
Part of the ‘Winter Light at the Southbank Centre’ series, the lighting installations are the work of Liverpool artist David Ogle.
The official website says:
David Ogle works with light as a sculptural material. With a practice deeply rooted in drawing and mark-making, he often applies his thinking to public space and landscape.
For his installation along the riverside Queen’s Walk, Ogle has worked with the natural forms of the London plane trees, extending and merging them with brilliantly-coloured neon flex.
Like a futuristic landscape, Loomin combines nature and modern technology to make an electric canopy that rises over the heads of pedestrians.
