About the Project

The San Carlos Lantern Relay is comprised of 8 six foot tall led lanterns placed along East San Carlos Street, between San Jose State University and Market Street in downtown San Jose. Each lantern is illuminated with an array of leds and is equipped with sensors that you can interact with to change the colors and patterns of each Lantern. The Lanterns simple interface give you opportunity to interact with others sending and receiving messages of light, up and down the urban corridor. The artwork is produced by the artists Steve Durie & Bruce Gardner.Contact Us
