Edouard Lévine, plastic artist sculptor, creates with Jean-Luc Hervé, the Orpailleurs de Lumière, an association of creators specialized in the sound.
The duo, Jean-Luc Hervé and Edouard Lévine, plays with the time, the space, the movement, the speed and the color in order to create foundamental links between perception, art and light.
Former editions of the Fête des Lumières:
2009 : « Carillon and light paintings » - Basilique de Fourvière
2011 : « The shadow-catcher totems» - Rhône banks
2013 : « Celestial pick-up sticks » - Rhône banks
As if they had been grasped and thrown toward the stars, immense rods of light fly to the sky and are reflected in the water of the Rhône. First warm, then cool, their colors change to the rhythm of an acoustical composition; the rods seems to leap, vibrate and fall to a staccato beat, while tracing a series of graphic lines on the water and in the air.

Dubaï Festival of Lights 2014
This popular public space is adorned with large luminous totems, inspired by the world of Native Americans. Like their wooden ancestors, these contemporary symbols are enclosed in a shroud of magic and mystery, a connection between dreams and reality. Impressive through their size and colours, these totems come to life thanks to a melodious ballet of light and sound initiated by the passing public and can be viewed from the right bank.
