A spectacular light sculpture installation, KEYFRAMES, by French artists’ collective, Groupe LAPS (installed by Curated Place) debuts in St Andrew’s Square on 4th Feb and runs until 28 March .  This is a key event in 2016 Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.

I managed a sneak preview as they were setting up and testing today so have not yet experienced the full show with the lights sequenced to original music to make the figures appear to move.   This sounds like something not to be missed!

Some of the figures look like rugby players which may reflect the upcoming Rugby 6 Nations – could this be  Stuart Hogg preparing for Saturday’s clash against the auld enemy?

Or perhaps basketball players here…

Or even the Thin White Duke making his moves…

These ones look more like gymnasts.

This will no doubt be clearer when animated.

Scottish country dancing maybe?
