WATCH: Light Me Lusail - Qatar's first international festival of lights

By QL Videos

The biggest and the first International Light Festival in Qatar was held at Lusail Marina in the first week of December.

Light Me Lusail, the three-day festival which began on 6th December, featured vibrant light installations in the Eastern Promenade.

Light art was the applied art form at the festival, in which light is the main medium of expression.

Installation of internationally acclaimed artist and co-founder of Ocubo, which specialises in light video mapping projection, Nuno Maya was present at the festival. The artist explored the heritage and future of Qatar, which was represented in a two-part installation at the arena. The concept of the passage was not only explored by public walking but through the perception of time.

Another popular installation featured was NEST, an artwork by Indian light designers and architects Vikas Patil and Santosh Gujar. Based on bowerbirds of Australia, the organic architecture was built from recycled materials and included multiple light sequences.

The event was an immersive sensorial installation related to natural phenomenon, yet focused on external and internal sensation by leading the audience to experience an altered state, losing notions of space and time.
