The opening of an innovative and surreal world coming to Paris

For the 10th consecutive year, the artists of the Brussels Light Project will place a giant sculpture of a cast of dancers and other creative souls next to the night sky. Kicking off their 10th anniversary during the eve of Dia de los Muertos, an internationally known Day of the Dead holiday, the time is 9:30 p.m. (or may be 9:30 p.m. if you come in bed at 9:30 p.m.). From 9:30 p.m. on, through 11:30 p.m., this won’t be just a blowout event in a plaza or on a stage. The installation will be, like the night sky, with different shapes and colors and characters. One LED light installation alone will light up an entire fifth floor.

It’s been 10 years of expanding people’s ideas of what a public installation might be. Instead of counting on viewers to reflect on what they think the sculpture’s “art” is (ostensibly in keeping with the perceived impact of street art as an art form), the city hopes people will be disturbed, frustrated, inspired, and maybe a little afraid to wake up to an empty void while their neighborhood is overwhelmed with kaleidoscopic lights.
