Jerusalem Festival of Light 2013: Jaffa Gate
Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 14, 2013
The fifth Jerusalem Festival of Light opened a week and a half ago and closed last night. We went three nights in a row last week. I can’t compare it to last year’s festival, because we were in Italy, but this year’s festival seemed smaller than previous exhibits. There were three instead of four trails, almost no live performances, and fewer exhibits. These photos were taken around Jaffa Gate, at the beginning of the white trail (full Flickr set, slideshow).
The helium kites shaped like birds are “Les Luminéoles,” by Christophe Martine (France). In the photo below you can see the kite flyer behind the white fabric flowers.
The coloured bubbles lit inside are “Soul Forest,” by Lucion Média (Canada).
“Nomad Flowers,” by Gilbert Moity (France), by the moat of the Tower of David.
“Path of Stars,” also by Gilbert Moity, along Armenian Patriarchate Street.
