To ‘highlight’ human existence and to show the spirit of a wounded city. That was the concept behind Wittner Fabrice‘s Enlightened Souls, a lightpainting project, which begun in May 2011 in Christchurch, New Zealand as an artistic and morale contribution to the 6.3 quake’s aftermath.

Edvard Munch, 1893
