The 28th edition of Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) is adding more exclusive experiences to its action-packed 46-day calendar with the second edition of “Dubai Lights” at City Walk.
Festival goers can enjoy a special showcase of 10 unique interactive light installations that create an immersive journey of artistic lights and sounds. In partnership with Light Art Collection, the outdoor exhibition “The Spark Within” celebrates the power, resilience and positivity of light and sound as a symbol of connection between people, places and nature.
●C/C is an interactive sculpture by Angela Chong that casts shadows by day and transforms into a colourful LED lightshow by night. The sculpture also functions as a seat for the public.
●LIGHT PIANO 2.0 by Arion de Munck and Mark Ridder combines art with music. It is composed of an arrangement of dozens of cubes connected to the keys of the piano that light up when thekeyboard is played, enabling the audience to experience both the sound and light in a multisensory experience.
