Waterlicht

WATERLICHT is the dream landscape about the power and poetry of water. As a virtual flood, it shows how high the water could reach and raises awareness about rising water levels.

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 sometimes seems to be forgotten. WATERLICHT is a powerful and poetic experience to remind us of the role and importance of innovation.

WATERLICHT is a combination of LEDs and lenses which create an ever changing layer of light, influenced by wind and rain. The WATERLICHT podcast broadcasts stories about the impact and potential of water.

WATERLICHT is created as site-specific artwork for Dutch District Water Board Rijn & IJssel, Museumplein in Amsterdam with more than 60.000 visitors in 1 night, Lumiere London, United Nations in New York, Nuit Blanche Paris, UNESCO Schokland, the Afsluitdijk, Rotterdam and Toronto.
