Once again light is experimented with. Colour is Music and Music is Colour.
Jan Fabel, Dirk van Poppel and Erwin Steijlen return to this edition of GLOW and once again tackle an iconic Eindhoven building: De Witte Dame. It has a rear facade too: big, severe and completely white. A clean, mathematical but enticing pattern of white areas and windows. Where since 1931 light was experimented with.
Just like a blank sheet of music that challenges them to add a composition with light, colour, movement and music. Once again light is experimented with. Colour is Music and Music is Colour. A ‘Colour Symphony’ that will change how you think about this intriguing building for ever.
Light is Life!
Once upon a time the stars and the moon were the only things that could lighten up the darkness. Nowadays, light is quite common. We cannot even imagine life without light anymore. Light brought us unprecedented possibilities! Everyone wants to enjoy light. But light not only affects life: it also affects the climate. That is why Signify wants to tell you a story during GLOW Eindhoven. A story about light, life and how everyone of us can take a step towards a more sustainable world: a #stapindegroenerichting.
‘Licht is Leven’ supports the ‘Colour Symphony’: a light artwork that transforms De Witte Dame Eindhoven into a composition of light, colour, movement and music.
The story is a tribute to light and in memory of Gerard Philips, who once expressed it so beautifully: "Light is life, light is happiness, light is festive!" Light is more than just light!
