The first place we stopped was near our everyday walk to school, right by the river. This location is one of my favorite spots in Prague because of the beautiful swans and gorgeous view of the city. The installation, "Cloud,” was a tree-like structure covered with hundreds of light bulbs, with the on/off strings attached. It was an interactive installation that people could pull on the cords to turn the lights on and off.
Next we walked across the Charles Bridge to take a peek at the eerie eyes placed at each tower. “Charles’ Guard” were two eyes on each end of the bridge that moved, blinked, and looked quite realistic. Glancing at the river each of the tour boat’s rudders were decorated with lights that glowed as they propelled through the water.
Looking up to Petřín Hill, the “Lighthouse” showed a light from the top of the Petřín Observation Tower.
As we parted through the crowds on the walk from the Charles Bridge to Old Town Square, the energy from the groups of people was quite noticeable. We reached the square and immediately saw a green laser shot across the sky, called the “Pipeline.” Farther in a large cube stood in the center of the square, right next to the Jan Hus statue. The “HyperCube” played a light show on cue to music that felt like you were front row to a concert once you got inside. This installation was my favorite experience as the music pulsed and had your eye amazed by the creativeness.
