This past weekend the Fete des Lumieres happened in Georgetown here in D.C. Several artists participated, I didn't get to see everyone's work, though I tried. 'Light' theme, near the holidays, near an ice rink and small children, near the waterfront - it's so charming you can already imagine it. Or can you?
You can if you're imagining glowing plastic people. Creepy glowing plastic people who are probably up to no good.
Image heavy, be warned.
|The stage is set - a lovely cold December evening in Georgetown by the ice rink. Happy people whose knees work and/or are fearless.|
|Aww, charm and prettiness! Glowy snowflakes!|
|And down now onto the waterfront...but...why so deserted?|
|Oh, hey, there's something in the distance....|
|Oh. Oh my. A glowing Victorian couple down by the canal. Hello glowing Victorian couple! You know your pelvises are glowing, right?|
|Oh sweet Lord you're made of packing tape and have no faces. Errrrrrrr....|
|You apparently do, however, or the very least you're good at climbing onto overpasses. Actually, I am a little sympathetic - the Whitehurst Freeway can be confusing to out-of-towners, and I'm guessing you're really not from around here.|
|Well, good thing there's a glowing message tree orb (thank you Canada!) over by that church that I can text for help, cuz it's clearly time to. I can hear sirens in the distance.|
Go take a look at the artist's site. This was clearly only meant to be the beginning.
