Spotlight on LiLu

The Lucerne Light Festival, also known as Lilu, will once again turn the city of Lucern into a glowing sea of lights from 6 to 16 January 2022 with its third edition. And the program has it all...


At this year's festival, various artists, both international and from Switzerland, will exhibit 20 different light installations along the right bank of the lake and in the old and new town. Apart from the outdoor installations, which will be open to the public free of charge every day from 6 to 10 p.m., installations and events are also planned indoors, for which a ticket must be purchased.


Collaboration with Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts


Circles and Squares is the name of one of the two projects resulting from the collaboration between the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Department of Music and of Design & Art, and the Lilu Light Festival Lucerne. This work, which will be projected onto the gallery of St. Peter's Chapel, is a narrative based on circles and squares. The music accompanying the show was created by students from the Department of Music.

"Events like LiLu are an ideal terrain for our students to develop their skills in Expanded Animation," explains Francois Chalet, an animation lecturer at HSLU who oversaw the students' two projects and will also be exhibiting at the festival. Expanded animation includes all animated formats outside of animated film for cinema, TV or the internet.


Nightlight & Fusion.Robot


We are particularly excited about one of the projects that is part of the illuminated tour. It is called Concrete Jungle, is the result of a collaboration between Nachtlicht and Fusion.Robot and will be located at the Lion Monument. In keeping with the exhibition location, the monument was integrated into the designed world of experience and wrapped in a playful story.

Another project by Nachtlicht, created especially for the 1st edition of the Vaduz Light Festival, is called Structure in Motion and will be projected onto the government building in Vaduz during the festival. We can't wait!!!
