4 years ago the Daisler Association and Cluj-Napoca City Hall launched the Lights On Initiative, meant to improve the festive lights across city by having architects, designers and young artist come up with solutions judged by an independent jury. The Lights ON contest is held every year since then and in 2016 Katalin Tanczos and Eszter Szoke (both from Cluj-Napoca) won the jury with Forest Spirits, the solution you can see right here.
Last year two old trees on Mihail Kogălniceanu street (in front of UBB Headquarters) were illuminated using this solution and we all felt an irezistible magnetism towards them and therefore we visited them all winter long.
Now Forest Spirits is installed in a much larger and accessible area. Forest Spirits uses light in a very friendly way, transforming the decorated parts of the city in fairy tale scenery. By suspending an impressive number of light bulbs above, the light surrounds us.
This winter we celebrate the road we took so far.
