The “Damascus Gate Chrysalis” was the most memorable exhibit at the Jerusalem Festival of Light 2014. If you only have time to see one installation, try to get to the Damascus Gate. The shows are continuous, with about five minutes between each presentation. If you plan to see it in person, I recommend that you not view the video at the end of this posting. My video, made with a hand-held camera, does not do it justice. Damien Fontaine used the chrysalis concept in 2012 (Les Chrysalides de Saint-Jean, Lyons Light Festival) and in 2013 (Bolchoï Chrisalis).
