Some of the brilliant public artwork at the Lumen Festival included Marco Brambilla [5]’s recreation of an expedition to the moon with the ‘Sea of Tranquility,’ and an illuminating installation from Phillip David Stearns [6]. The whole event was curated by Christopher Eamon and seems like a fantastic way to make the most of an unusually mild winter and a whole lot of leftover salt (which can still be reused after the festival is over).
