The Bentway presented WATERLICHT, a monumental public art intervention designed by acclaimed Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde.
The large-scale light installation illustrates the universal power and poetry of water and had its Canadian premiere in Toronto on Friday October 12th 2018. t
Waterlicht is a dream landscape created through the imaginative use of LEDs, special software, and lenses. Larger-than-life, cascading waves of blue light soared underneath the Gardiner Expressway, simulating a virtual flood and calling attention to rising water levels along Toronto’s shoreline.
Originally WATERLICHT was created for the Dutch District Water Board. As a travelling exhibition, site-responsive versions have been staged in Amsterdam’s Museumplein, London’s Granary Square, and Paris’ Parc Clichy-Batignolle.
