City Light installation in downtown Shanghai
In an exhibition entitled 'I love Shanghai' at the Art Labor gallery, the Chinese designer Lu Xinjian is showing a unique light installation until January 5, 2014.
City Light features a "pattern" of the city, based on a image of Shanghai using the program Google Earth. The artwork appears to "come to life" in the darkness of the exhibition hall, as the light bulbs gradually turn on spreading from the centre of a large blue rectangle to the edges of the installation. The piece represents the expansion and steady growth of the largest city in China - Shanghai.
