Daan Roosegaarde has created a “Waterlicht”, a lighting installation that resembles the aurora borealis above a flood channel of the Netherland’s River Ijssel. Waterlight is the dream landscape about the power and poetry of water. As a virtual flood, it shows how high the water could reach without human intervention. Innovation is within the DNA of the Dutch landscape via its waterworks and creative thinking, yet their seems to forgotten this; Waterlicht is a powerful and poetic experience to remember. The LEDs are projected through lenses to focus the light. The sources are installed around the periphery of the area, positioned so the beams criss cross in midair as they slowly move up and down – powered by motors. Waterlicht was created in partnership with Dutch water board Rhine and IJssel to raise awareness that large areas of the Netherlands lie below sea level.
