Shifting and evolving as it travels to rivers throughout the world, the River of Light has gained local and international recognition through its ability to not only engage communities to participate in the work, but also to highlight the importance of river preservation and water conversation on a global scale. The River of Light is a world touring art installation by Creatmosphere that combines floating lights, sound and new technologies to celebrate the rivers of the world through public art.
River of Light Art project on the Bow River in Calgary August 2010, Artist: Laurent Louyer. Photo slideshow to start with video clip of colour changes starting at 1:31 and then a few more images. Music by Roger Subiranan Mata, “Point of No Return”, available through a creative commons license on http://www.jemendo
2013 marks the 100th birthday of the City of Red Deer and to celebrate this the Red Deer River will become the territory and stage for a series of daylight sculptural and sound installations and night-time light and video interventions that aim to create new Points of View for the community to discover and engage with their city and river.
The River of Lights: Points of View has been commissioned by the
Central Alberta Historical Society for the Red Deer City Centennial.
