Stimulate your senses in the dream landscape WATERLICHT. As a virtual flood made of LEDs, software and lenses, WATERLICHT inundates the Museumpark to show how high the water could reach without human intervention. At the same time WATERLICHT raises awareness around rising water levels caused by global warming. Experience the power and poetry of water!
The Rotterdam première of WATERLICHT has been specially designed by Daan Roosegaarde for the Museumpark and the Kunsthal. This unique location has a long history with water. The Westzeedijk has protected the area between Gouda, Leiden and Rotterdam from flooding since the 13th century. Furthermore, the underground water catchment in the Museumpark garage is one of the means of limiting water damage in Rotterdam.
Studio Roosegaarde’s WATERLICHT is presented in the context of the hallucinatory exhibition ‘Action <> Reaction. 100 years of kinetic art’ in the Kunsthal Rotterdam. The exhibition specially will be open specially for the WATERLICHT evenings.
