WATERLICHT is the dream landscape about the power and poetry of water. As a virtual flood, it shows how high the water could reach without human intervention and raises awareness around rising water levels caused by global warming.

Innovation is engraved in the DNA of the Dutch and its landscape as seen by its innovative water program and creation of dikes. However, it almost seems to have been forgotten. WATERLICHT is a powerful and poetic experience to remind us of the role and importance of innovation.

Originally the artwork was created for the Dutch District Water Board Rijn & IJssel. New site-specific series of WATERLICHT were created for the Museumplein in Amsterdam which attracted more than 60.000 visitors in 1 night, Lumiere London, United Nations in New York, Nuit Blanche Paris, UNESCO Schokland, and the Afsluitdijk in the Netherlands.
