Creative pieces done using light have added a quirky touch to Taikoo Li Sanlitun, a fashion block in the capital

On Aug 15, Taikoo Li Sanlitun, a popular fashion block in central Beijing, greeted passersby with the breeze of art. Four pieces of art using light by domestic and foreign artists were showcased in different parts of the neighborhood.

Sky Eye by Nan Haibo is an interactive device in the shape of an eye. Made of square mirror stainless steel blocks, it reflects the surroundings like a plain canvas during day time, and turns into a huge colorful light box at night.

Imaginary Magic Butterfly by Huang Qicheng is a realistic sculpture of a butterfly standing close to a blooming flower. Here, hollowed-out steel plate has been used to shape the wings, making the sculpture more vivid.

The other two pieces are both inspired by childhood memories and toys.

Bubble Magician, jointly created by local artists Liu Yang and Yang Lu, stands in the south piazza of the block like bubbles flying.

It made its first appearance at Vivid Sydney, a festival of light, music and ideas in Australia. It is introduced as a delicate and whimsical work with timeless, universal appeal, by the festival's official website.
