Light Matters: Europe’s Leading Light Festivals

In mid autumn, when the nights get longer in the northern hemisphere, we encounter numerous light festivals. And indeed, within the last ten years, more and more light festivals have globally emerged. The reason for the success of light festivals is simple, as the German curator Bettina Pelz concludes: “It’s actually fairly easy, because whenever you do something with light in cities in the night, then people do come. If you do it good, they come twice.”

As Pelz points out, light is an apt medium for evening events, since it easily attracts people. Communities have discovered the potential of lighting for city marketing, and the closer they plan their date to Christmas, the more they merge their illumination with the festive blinking lights of commercial Christmas markets.

Secret cinema found beneath Paris.
In September 2004, French police discovered a hidden chamber in the catacombs under Paris. It contained a full-sized movie screen, projection equipment, a bar, a pressure cooker for making couscous, a professionally installed electricity system, and at least three phone lines. Movies ranged from 1950s noir classics to recent thrillers.
When the police returned three days later, the phone and power lines had been cut and there was a note on the floor: “Do not try to find us.” (via)

A man who can ‘taste’ words has created a flavour map of the London Underground network after visiting every stop during a 49 year project.

James Wannerton has synaesthesia, a neurological condition that links senses which are normally experienced separately. The map is now being used by researchers to help understand the link between word formations and the tastes synaesthetes experience.

As an example, Baker Street in central London is one of the ‘tastiest stops,’ says Mr. Wannerton:

Baker Street is lovely. The best way to describe it is crusty and sweet, like jam ropy-poly but slightly burnt. It has got loads of different tastes and textures. I love getting out there.
