The Jerusalem Festival of Light brings Jerusalem's Old City alive with light – from the illumination of architecture to light statues.
Light not only a performs a function, but can be used to illuminate and showcase a place in another light. Light as an art form has evolved over the past twenty years and integrates beauty, concept, abstraction and technology with a wide range of possibilities and usages. Around the world there are a growing number of festivals that focus on the influence of light on urban space.
