Place des Jacobins festival of Lights

Artist David Udovtsch reflects an image of them onto the fountain at Jacobins square.

Udovtsch has always been interested in how lighting works. The artist recalls how he went to a football match at Gerland stadium in Lyon when he was a young boy, but rather than watching the match, he was more captivated by the stadium’s spotlights.

The top of the fountain will transform into a lighthouse, sweeping a beam of light across the audience.
