This is exactly what it looks: a rainbow made of neon tubes. “Rainbow Above,” by Eran Klein and Eli Cochavi, is one of those pieces that was more successful as a concept. The installation was so close to the buildings that it was nearly impossible to photograph without having awnings and other lights in the picture.

Illusion of Transparency,” by Yael Schiffman, was a kaleidoscope projected into the tunnel of the Closed Cardo.

Back to the Jerusalem Festival of Light…. This year’s live performance was Y Circus, to the music of Queen. Above: Israel’s answer to Freddy Mercury. I didn’t make a video of the performance but I see that someone else uploaded a video.

This shot was not easy to get–dark background, dim lighting, and they were rotating continuously. Got lucky with one shot where one of the performers was smiling at the audience.
