Spectra – a night of light

Prepare yourself for wonder with a four night spectacular of art and light installations across Aberdeen city. Marischal College, St Nicholas Kirk, Belmont Street and Union Terrace gardens have all been transformed by fascinating and eerie experiences from rather strange abstract artwork to rainbow displays on the side of buildings.


A spectacular display of images was projected onto the side of Mitchell Hall at Marischal College. This was combined with classical music and made for a very dramatic presentation.

School children drew these – I loved the pikachu!


There was a very interesting collection of different displays. Some showed drawings created by local school children while others used smoke and lights to create a holographic ring effect. A particularly fascinating one was a series of projected lights creating an energetic ribbon effect. Photographing them never produced the same formation twice.

And to end with a common Aberdonian saying created in neon light tubes…..



If you are in the Aberdeen area this weekend, it is definitely worth a visit – limited time only!
