Light:Bridge is a large-format public light art installation.

Parallel beams of bright, concentrated light project across a river. From far off, it intrigues the eye and takes the form of a sturdy crossing. As the observer gets closer, its ethereal nature is revealed. Only light can make this crossing, linking the two sides with ease and elegance.

Lighting is extremely powerful, shaping our emotions, our urban fabric, and everything in between. While light serves a mostly utilitarian function in our day-to-day lives, as an artistic medium, it ignites wonder and awe, and draws crowds.

As you stand to observe you are urged to consider where Light:Bridge can take you.

The design of Light:Bridge relies on contrast; the contrast between each beam of light against the dark water below. Most of all, Light:Bridge creates an iconic visual beacon that has the potential to become a permanent part of a cityscape, or for a shorter-term engagement for major events such as the Olympics.

Created by renowned lighting designer and artist Christien Methot, founder and principal designer of his firm Design One Lighting, Methot has over 25 years of experience in a variety of lighting applications including television, live concerts, architectural interiors and exteriors, fashion shows, corporate events, and more.

French lighting manufacturer Ayrton and their North American exclusive partner ACT Entertainment have donated COBRA lighting fixtures for the proof-of-concept that was mounted in Paris, crossing the Seine, in July 2023. In the future, Light:Bridge will be installed in other cities around the world as public art, evoking the works of Christo, with the potential to become a landmark. The beauty and power of Light:Bridge is its bold simplicity.
