Over a wind farm on the coast of the Netherlands province of Zeeland is a connect-the-dots on a very large and magnificent scale. Dutch artists Studio Roosegaarde reportedly took inspiration from the Dutch town of Kinderdijk, near Rotterdam, which has a landscape dotted with windmills, for inspiration for their new installation, east and south of the capital city in St. Annaland. “Windlicht” (Windlight) is a series of vivid green lines of light connecting the modern windmills of a large wind farm facing the North Sea. “Filling the sky with a dynamic dance of light and movement, special software and tracking technology detect blades rotating at 280 kilometers per hour (174 mph), forming an ever-changing network of color and illumination that fills in the gaps between the neighboring turbines,” reports Nina Azzarello for Designboom.
You can go see “Windlicht” in Zeeland this weekend (on the nights of March 18 and 19), from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Eneco Wind Farm.
Check out Nina Azzarello’s full article, complete with extra images and a video of the installation, over at Designboom.
