after dinner we went to the art gallery (because we've never been there). the usual.. some cool, some weird, some i think tried too hard, and some totally bizarre art is displayed. meh.
then later, when night falls (and luckily the rain had stopped), the Adelaide Festival light show called The Northern Lights started. they turned the old buildings on North Terrace (it is the name of the road) into canvas of art where colourful 'skins' are projected onto the builing giving them instant makeovers.
here are some of the pics i took that night. there are more but i'll figure out where i'll upload em and post the link here ^^
these pics are of the same building -
and the video how the lights change. sorry i timed it horribly. but i hope u get the idea :D
after a few minutes the projection will change and reveal a new 'skin'. lol i make it sound like skin for laptop and mobile phone :P
