Dune

DUNE is the landscape of light which interacts with human behaviour. The hybrid of nature and technology is composed of hundreds of fibers that brighten according to the sounds and motions of passing visitors.

Winner of the World Technology Award USA, Design for Asia Award, and China Most Successful Design Award.

With its hundreds of interactive LED lights and sounds DUNE explores nature in a futuristic relation to urban space and people. Visitors are a direct part of the artwork, enhancing social interactions between themselves and the landscape. This is something Daan Roosegaarde defines as "techno-poetry". DUNE is exhibited internationally in musea and public spaces across the globe.
