The city of Leeuwarden – Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018 – is the next city where Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde shows a special light-art project. ‘Waterlight’ is the name of his visual ‘dream-landscape’, which will be placed on the Wilhelminaplein from February 1 till 4.
This light art project from the Dutch artist – also known for his light art on the Afsluitdijk – could been seen earlier this year in Madrid, Paris and Amsterdam.
‘Waterlight’ will give the visitor the experience of how it is when a town is ‘underwater’. The art-work makes people realize that it is not easy to keep cities dry and free from water, and that it takes a lot of work to prevent cities and countries from floods.
Waterlight is the official kick-off of WaterConnecting 2018, the programme full of water events in and around Leeuwarden.
