CONNECTING LIGHT

A cross-border lightproject

From 1 december 2018 to13 january 2019 a line of light with a length of 12 kilometers connects five defining buildings in the region Venlo/Nettetal.

Innovatoren Venlo
Stadskantoor Venlo 
Molenbossenflats Blerick 
Schoorsteen Wienenberger Tegelen 
Kerk Kaldenkirchen

Connecting Light shows that there are connections everywhere, not only between buildings but also between people and the landscape. The artist want to send out a positive signal with this. We are part of a larger whole and cannot exist without each other.

The landscape is a dynamic domain with an infrastructure of bridges, roads and railways. A domain with a past, a present and a future which changes with time. Connecting Light enters into a dialogue with the environment. In its static appearance, the stillness of the line is a counterpart to our hectic existence.

A walking route is part of this project. You can follow the line of light through the landscape during the dark hours: a live experience. As a spectator you become part of the art work. It changes your perception of the space that surrounds you.

During the project, the green light line was frequently photographed by passers-by. It’s a collection of images that gives you an impression of project.
