Jerusalem Festival of Light 2014: “Control No Control” and “Don’t Give Up on the Light”

“Control No Control” (Daniel Iregui, Canada) is an interactive installation that reacts to touch. I found the heavy bass techno sound track a bit monotonous but the lighting effects were interesting.

The array of hands touching the surface caught my attention, like a strange, multi-dexterous octopus playing the piano.

“Don’t Give Up on the Light” (Shelly Bin Nun, Israel) is a clever sculpture constructed of trash, casting a shadow of Jerusalem landmarks.

The use of cut-outs to create the illusion of three dimensions is clever. For example, the highlight on the Dome of the Rock is created by cutting a piece out of a plastic disposable plate.

      Thanks! The one year I wasn’t able to go to the festival (we were on vacation in Italy two years ago), I really missed it!
