Graffiti Lanterns will be temporary, modular, sculptural installations that will attract participants with dynamic light effects and inviting visitor interaction. Participants of all ages will have the opportunity to progressively expose a colored light source hidden behind opaque paint layers. Using a simple, common, everyday tool such as a coin or key, light will shine through a transparent acrylic surface when a layer of paint is scratched off. Some may be inspired to write a note or an inspirational quote. Some may feel the urge to draw a picture while others may enjoy the act of simply scratching an abstract pattern. Others may just enjoy experiencing light being revealed. Regardless of the method, the outcome will result in a dynamic, ever evolving, engaging sculpture where visitor’s contributions will “be the light” of the festival!
