stunning etherial environmental installation. m.

from february 26 to march 1st 2015, passersby the flood channel of the netherland’s river ijssel can experience something incredible seemingly hovering in the dutch skies — the latest artwork by daan roosegaarde. ‘waterlicht’ — described by first visitors as the ‘the northern light of the netherlands’ — comprises undulating lines of light spreading across a site of over 4 acres. the collaboration between studio roosegaarde and the dutch water board rhine and ijssel materializes as ‘a combination of awareness and a dreamscape’, as described by the dutch artist and innovator. ‘by adding – aside from the latest LED-technology – experience and perception, we create a virtual flood.’
