J. Meejin Yoon's Light Drift: October 15-17, 2010 from Philebrity on Vimeo.
One of the great installations as part of DesignPhiladelphia was "Light Drift" by artist Meejin Yoon, presented by the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. Only able to be viewed at night, and only up for three days this past weekend, it was one of those "happenings" that are both great art, and great community celebrations. If you missed it, here is a video that captures a little of the magic.
Opening on October 25th in the Art Gallery of City Hall will be a salute to some of the DesignPhiladelphia installations that the City was involved in, directly or indirectly, including Light Drift. It will also include material related to the Aurora Robson be like water installation at the Skybox (that runs through November 7th), the Virtual Public Art Project exhibit with Breadboard, Philadelphia Underground, curated by Marianne Bernstein, and FABLASTIC, by Multicultural Youth eXchange (MYX) and Minima. So if you missed any of these or would like to see some of the background to how they were created, visit City Hall! As I have written here before I believe DesignPhiladelphia is a great creative economy asset for Philadelphia - these are just a handful of the many DP exhibitions and installations that took place over the past couple of weeks.
Here is another great video by klipcollective of Philadelphia Underground:
