2018 marks the first participation in the Festival of Lights for 41 students of Branly and La Martinière – Diderot high schools. Under the supervision of Philippe Charreton and Michel Theuil, who head the lighting engineer program studied at the Lycée Branly, these 2nd year students have worked on their art installation for nearly 3 months. This has enabled them to apply and extend the knowledge gained from their classes in a practical manner, as well as meeting and working with students from other schools. A real source of creative ideas, the light engineer and design apprentices have turned their hand to the process of creating a work of art, which also provides a valuable insight into the work that lies ahead for these future graduates.

When night falls, the 27 windows on the façade of the Lycée de la Martinière light up in an experimental display. Each window of this art nouveau building, which looks like an open book, displays animated or static artwork evoking an illuminated letter in a manuscript. Whatever the medium - Chinese shadows, reflections, stencils, videos, figurative or abstract decors - these 27 mini scenes tell the inspiring story of 41 budding artists. Mirage is a veritable showcase for the boundless imagination and dedication of these students.
