Geneva: Festival of Trees and Light

Photos of the 2006 Festival des arbres et lumières in Geneva, Switzerland. The city of Geneva, Switzerland holds an annual "Festival of Trees and Lights" at the end of December / beginning of January. I fell in love with one installation in particular at the 2006 festival. The artist (much respect to him) had molded a series of human forms out of wire, suspended said from electrical cables or positioned them on a bridge crossing the Rhône river or on surrounding rooftops, and then highlighted all with spotlights. The overall effect was magical. I was inspired to use a composite of these diaphanous creations for my New Year's card. I also used the photos for two book cover proposals.
