CZECH THE LIGHT Presented Unique Light Installations in Český Krumluv
The CZECH THE LIGHT cultural events series supported by the CzechTourism agency together with the SIGNAL Festival is slowly drawing to a close. There are only two more stops to visit – Berlin and Prague, however, last weekend the event grabbed everyone’s attention in Český Krumlov and attracted crowds of people in the fine weather.
The Friday and Saturday evenings belonged to light installations in the streets of Český Krumlov entertaining children and adults alike. Six unique projects embellishing the public space and making it special found new and innovative locations – the Metropolia projection surrounded itself by industrial space, the dreamy House of Shadows shone in the city park, the interactive Cloud mirrored in the river... and many visitors did not miss out the Uranium Figure light sculpture by Rony Plesl or the dazzling Sun by Josef Šafařík either.
 
The most popular, however, was the live ArchiBio mapping by Czech artist Andrej Boleslavský projected on the front of the 16th century Town Hall building. This mapping attracted mainly excited children who crowded the Náměstí svornosti Square. Watching ants and microorganisms was not enough for them in the end and they even asked for a microscopic projection of the brain, strictly for educational purposes only, of course!

 
On 30th August the CZECH THE LIGHT event was preceded by the entertaining light painting workshop in the streets of Český Krumlov. In the course of the main event held on 5th and 6th September, another light painting workshop took place introducing this popular form of light art to more diligent enthusiasts.
 
No matter, if you came to play with light brushes, or if your attention was captured by the light installations, thank you very much for coming and being with us! There will be one more light painting stop in Berlin on 13th September. And remember to save 16th – 19th October in your calendars for the CZECH THE LIGHT highlight – the second edition of the Signal Light Festival. New installations, new accompanying events, new video mapping projections ... Prague can start looking for a four-day whirlwind of dazzling originality. Make sure you don’t miss it out!
