Have you ever imagined a maze of flashing LEDs on the sidewalk in your city? The American artist Jim Campbell made it happen in Hong Kong, making a beautiful and welcoming show. Scattered Light, as he called his installation, has 80 feet long and 20 high. Although the city is already lit by street lights, in traffic lights, houses and offices, light is cold and impersonal. So, the flashing of 2,000 LEDs that make up this piece illuminate the darkness: they are tiny flashes, dissipating night at moments. They are the light persisting, giving warmth and hope to human hearts. Jim Campbell has made Scattered Light in different cities.
