PhotoTO: Night Lights Away

Following on from previous lightbased-fun installations, Newmindspace set out on Saturday night to attach enough coloured LED lights onto fishing wire, suspended by helium-filled balloons, to reach higher than the CN Tower, over 1800 feet. About halfway to the goal, however, the wire snapped in half, sending several hundred lights soaring off into the night sky, trailing behind a cluster of white balloons. The rest of the lights snaked harmlessly down to earth on the King’s College Circle lawn.
