Lumen is an aunual art festival that brings together art and tech through captivating interdisciplinary installations. Installations should feature the work of artists while also testing the limits or functions of technological platforms. Platforms can be high-tech, low-tech or somewhere in-between – the idea is that there is an artful and explorative exchange between technology and creativity. The goal of the festival is to celebrate the great community spaces, places, and parks that are available for use by the community and to animate public space through creative temporary installations.
