Making its show stopping debut at the 24th edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), Dubai’s biggest citywide shopping extravaganza created by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of Dubai Tourism, is Light Art DXB; a breathtaking installation combining the elements of movement and light that will be on display from 7 January until 13 February at the Burj Park Plaza.
Creating a dynamic environment from optimally placed giant mirrors, Light Art DXB will bathe Downtown Dubai’s Burj Park Plaza in a mesmerising kaleidoscope of light. The display of six dynamic sculptures, created through rotating mirrors and supported by a strategic placement of light, will complement the Burj Park Plaza and additionally work in harmony as a reflection base for Burj Khalifa.
A bespoke artistic installation by Dubai Tourism and masterminded by Dubai based technical designer, John Jossifakis in collaboration with Frankfurt and Athens based lighting designer, George Tellos, Light Art DXB is the first in a series of new installations the city will enjoy in 2019.
Light Art DXB is inspired by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai. The reflections and interactive dynamics between the six sculptures exemplify how colours can transform our daily lives and Dubai as a city. The project is commissioned by Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and is on display at Burj Park Plaza until 13 February.
