Art & Community: Light City in Photos

Excerpt:

A crowd of people were standing under a square, metal awning, struggling to get a glimpse of what was at its center. Murmurs rose at the crowd grew larger. Lights were erupting all around and other-worldly sounds were emitted from the object that was at its core. Everyone was pressed tightly together and peering over shoulders as they struggled to find out what was so captivating.

Returning at a different time and the scene is completely different. Instead of a bursting crowd, only a few people surround the exhibit curiously examining what they found at its center: a small, shiny ball. It was void of the lights and sounds radiating before, except for a quick burst and blip at seemingly random intervals. But it wasn’t random at all.

One by one, the scattered onlookers grew closer as the people caught on that if they had contact with one another, the lights and sounds became brighter and louder. Pretty soon, a circle formed with known and unknown passersby holding hands as the colorful light show surrounded them.
