Gilbert Moity

Born in 1965, Gilbert Moity conception of the light of its own with a quirky path: live shows, lighting of architectural works and diverse artistic installations through public events.

The night is his playground where he creates his fictions. Free, he creates urban landscapes in order to make them more narrative.

Gaze deeply into the hypnotic spectacle of fluid, geometric movements made by 154 circles of blue light positioned on the tower's west facade. This luminous breathing expresses all the energy produced inside the building. This light ballet can be seen from Fourvière Hill.

Magic Cube (2012)

Place Bellecour, Lyon 2

Let’s go for a ride together! Visitors who become cyclists for an evening will compete against each other in a static race to illuminate the statue of Louis XIV and its pedestal. This unusual and amusing competition will take place on the huge square: adults and children will leap astride one of the thirty bikes available and take up the challenge to pedal as fast as possible in time with each other. This combined energy will create a series of abstract coloured images which vary with every sequence and light up the statue of Louis XIV in a unique way. At the end of this race, which lasts a few minutes, there will be a grand finale of light to reward the athletes’ efforts.
