Carrieres de Lumieres

 

lumin wave_IR.jpgJohn and I are all about repurposing things… whether it is a hunk a wood we make into a table or a slab of rock into a bench.  We love nature and using it for new and interesting useful things.  During our visit to France we went to this fascinating old Boxite quarry in Les Baux en Provence.

The ‘mine’ itself was fascinating, but their repurposed use of it, was even more fantastic.

They developed light shows of works of art that they shown onto the walls of the mine that played and faded with the music.  It was wonderful.

The ‘shows’ change ever 6 months or so.  When we went it was works of the Picasso mixed in with The Spanish Masters and a Pop Culture show.

It was one of the most interesting ‘shows’ we have seen… truly magical.  We stayed and watch it loop all the way through as we stumbled through the mine and watch the works of art unfold before us in full living color.  Just fantastic!
