There is a light that never goes out

28 Feb

Take me out tonight

Where there’s music and there’s people

And they’re young and alive

The Smiths: There is a light that never goes out

Last Saturday night, Melbourne experienced it’s second installment of White Night. Just like the first time, the city was lit up like a proverbial Christmas tree and people packed into the CBD in the hundreds of thousands, to be a part of it.

What earth hour does for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, White Night took us a major step backwards. 12 hours of projections on buildings and bridges. Floodlights reaching for the sky. Not to mention every office building and shop that had lights a blazing.

But my gosh, those projections were amazing. Flinders Street Station as a jumping castle. The Forum as a circus big top. Faces in the trees. Viruses taking over the State Library.

I hope you enjoy these snapshots…

Here’s looking forward to the 2015 version.
