Light Festival Ghent I
Royal Conservatory Plaza
For the first time in Belgium, the City of Ghent organised a light festival and Mr.Beam was part of it. We chose the back yard of Ghent’s conservatory, giving us a beautiful 180° canvas to work with. We were inspired by the huge contrast of the building, in many ways. The stunning aged exterior compared with the modern style of the interior -, but also the difference between the overall atmosphere of the building during the day and at night: at night the building gives you a quite dark and spooky feeling, while in broad daylight you will be surrounded by beautiful music that’s being played by the students.
