Louis XIV Statue | fete des lumieres

Currently underway in Lyon, France is their most famous event, their annual Festival of Lights. Designers from all around the world flock to the city to take over buildings, squares, rivers and hills so that its over 4 million visitors can enjoy the colorful Christmas celebration. Lasting just four days, from December 6 to December 9 this year, it’s a stunning site to behold.

One of the most interesting displays occurs on or near the Louis the XIV statue, which was made back in 1825. While in years past, the statue was lit up or beautifully framed by the bright ferris wheel placed next to it, this year, it was placed on a “magic cube” created by artist Moity Gilbert. Thirty bikes were placed around the statue and visitors were encouraged to pedal as fast as they could. The collective energy created a series of bright, abstract images on the cube. At the end of the race, a surprise awaited them as flares went off like a mini fireworks show.
