Video: This Is What Happens When Artists Are Let Loose In Berlin

Friday, March 19, 2010

This is the first time I’ve heard about it, but for the past five years, Berlin has celebrated the Festival of Lights in mid-October. The festival entails, basically, letting the boat-load of artists that call the city home do what they want with light projections all over the city, including on some of they city’s more iconic structures, including the Brandenburg Gate and the Fernsehturm (television tower). Somehow this seems fitting for a city so connected to electronic music.

Believe me, after seeing this incredible video you’re going to want to be there too.

Highlight: I love the building at 2:08, which basically looks like those floaty things from Pandora are swarming some neo-classical building in Berlin.
