Firefly Field

Firefly Field

Location
Gloeilampplantsoen, Achtseweg Zuid 151

Firefly Field is a mesmerizing light installation of numerous flying light points that simulate the movements of fire flies. Glowing, darting and hovering above the ground. The ever-changing bioluminescence of each one is reflected in the grassy slope. On mass, they create a dynamic light scene that triggers visitors’ curiosity and awe.

With Firefly Field, Dutch artists Toer share their fascination for the aesthetics and movement of these tiny winged creatures, and their interest in the way dynamic moving light can express a mood. This minimalist arrangement consists of LED light points housed in transparent capsules supported on superfine, barely visible steel rods that flex and spring with the weight of the pod, giving each firefly its unpredictable and natural movement.

Studio Toer is a multidisciplinary design studio from the Netherlands, founded in 2011 by Castor Bours (1984) and Wouter Widdershoven (1986). All Studio Toer’s creations begin with the freedom of play. With backgrounds in the arts and design (Design Academy Eindhoven) and interactive design (Industrial Design TU Eindhoven) and a strong explorative and experimental approach, they are able to push both the aesthetical and technical boundaries of design while using a wide variety of media.
