Daan Roosegaarde: Waterlicht

Sponsored by:

Inspired by our changing relationship to water, the risk we all face if immediate action is not taken to tackle global warming and rising sea levels, Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde transforms Granary Square into an ethereal dream-like landscape.

Waterlicht underlines the power and poetry of water, enveloping viewers in a virtual flood whilst contemplating its potential for the future. Can we build floating cities? How much power can we generate from the movement of water? For a fully immersive experience the public are encouraged to use their mobile devices and headphones to tune into the accompanying soundtrack.

Listen to Daan Roosegaarde who will accompany you on a magical water journey by tuning into www.waterlichtradio.com.
