The symbolic meaning of a carnival is characterised by the nature of a carousel; striving for change, relentless movement and, at the same time, having fun, joy, a propensity for the unexpected and surprising. Visible from a considerable distance, the light installation in Vērmanes Garden calls on us to submerge ourselves in fun, hope, illusion, and when we disembark from this maelstrom of light and sound, everything around us will seem to have changed for the better. Throughout the event, visitors to this intangible light carousel will be able to perpetuate themselves and the installation in long-exposure photographs.
