What is it about lights in the dark that we love so much?

Something that struck me particularly about both of these exhibitions/installations, was the affect it had on the public.

In both cases, people became quiet, more respectful - as if in a library or church, but all the more marked due to the fact that we were outside.

The usual rush to get from A to B in this cold late winter chill was momentarily paused, as people began to stroll peacefully around the lights.

They seemed to bring people together, in an unspoken unity, a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
