Les Luminéoles and Lentille d’eau

Founded by kite and paragliding enthusiast Christophe Martine, artist association Porté par le vent brought two installations to Canal Convergence 2017 from their native France: Les Luminéoles and Lentille d’eau. Les Luminéoles is a procession of five colorful “helium light kites” that soared into the sky each evening to perform an enchanting aerial ballet. The kites take the forms of carps and dragonflies, and each creature was piloted by a single person residing in large, blooming flower on the ground that lights up with each flight. Lentille d’eau is a light installation composed of 50 luminous spheres which were placed in the canal from Marshall Way Bridge to Goldwater Boulevard, and radiated different color sequences each night.
