Luminaire London - I only got to see one one, but had endless people telling me it was a let down & I was frankly shocked at the installation on Westminster Abbey. We are london - an iconic city - an iconic building - is this the best the Uk has to offer? From the rest I can see some are big companies capitalising on an opportunity to market technology to a corporate market -about as far removed from art is I can imagine. One installation was on a high value corporate I was involved in last year - PR stunt for the launch of a whiskey.
Shocking if we invested a fraction of the budgets & funding on actually artist perhaps we could again be great leaders.
