Waterlicht

WATERLICHT is the dream landscape about the power and poetry of water. As a virtual flood, WATERLICHT shows how high the water level could reach. WATERLICHT is a collective experience to remind us of the importance of innovation and the impact of climate change.

Winner of LIT 2017 Lighting Designer of the Year USA and The Best Lighting Environment Design China.

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

Daan Roosegaarde: “WATERLICHT is an inspiration for the future: should we build floating cities, how much power can we generate from the movement of water? Experience the vulnerability and the power of living with 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, Kunsthal Rotterdam, the Bentway Toronto, Jameel Arts Centre Dubai, Columbia University New York, and Fremantle Biennale Australia.
