The illuminated past: using light installations to interpret world heritage sites’
Lovell, J. 2019. The illuminated past: using light installations to interpret world heritage sites’.
Whether by candle, fire, gas or electricity, light and darkness shape the way we see the space about us, including fragile World Heritage Sites. The ‘lumière’ festival has, in recent years, become an established form of entertainment, with many cities and heritage sites seizing the opportunity to attract large audiences and increase tourism revenues. These light installations use an architectural technique called projection-mapping to create spectacles such as the Fête des Lumières in Lyon and Lumiere in Durham.
