Lightopia 2020 at Chiswick House

?>

Fantastic evening at the opening of Lightopia at Chiswick House which opens to the public on the 22nd January till 1st March 2020.  We are transported to a very different world of expression and raw emotion with light designs and interactive pieces. The interaction between space and form is made possible by Lightopia, a spiritual society that exists only in the works and ideas of its creation. The light festival builds on the idea that Lightopia transcends the original form and serves an even higher purpose through careful artistic intervention.

The Lightopia trail takes 90min, wrap up warm as it is outside. You will see installations throughout include, The Love Gate, Tree of Life, Elysian Field, Flower Hand, The Flower Road, Happy Valley and many more, symbolising various experiences throughout life and humanity.

All the Chinese lanterns are handmade in China and shipped over for the Lightopia festival.
