Winterlight at Waddsdon Manor
I thought I'd missed it, but Bruce Munro's Winterlight (shiny contemporary lights at very fancy stately home Waddesdon Manor) was running till the weekend after New Year's. Above, you can see a mass of attack moons created by projectors in a field of silage bales: formal gardens filled with massed fibre optic flowers, tipped with bobbles like the stoma of alien mosses: lamppost caught in a dimensional accident: best bottle greenhouse ever: giant floating alien seedpods: the garden with the full moon: fairy-light mistletoe (not art, just decoration): morse code river: cockatoo-chattering neon clothespegs. You can read the sleeve notes here (and see what Bruce did last Christmas). I must return in daylight sometime.
The gardens seemed... intriguing.
