San Carlos Lantern Relay (2016) is comprised on eight 6’ tall lanterns along E. San Carlos Street between the San Jose State University campus and the downtown cultural and events district. The lanterns are programmed to “play” a range of lighting programs and respond to pedestrian traffic. Interrupting the programmed lighting, people are invited to activate the lanterns via a button on the support pole.
