Design: Studio Ivo Hulskamp
Client: Amsterdam Light Festival
Visited by water: Boats sail through the artwork and become one with it. The moment the visitor can see the infinity tunnel of light, their world changes from a crowded city to a monumental light space. In an instant you are inside an unique place that is reaching far greater than expected. The simplicity and the scale of the work makes that you touch a different realm. Visited by land: Visitors can enter one of the containers and look through a one way mirror into the light tunnel. There is a moment of intimacy when the boats enter and leave the light space. New Monument is a water and land work and will give an involved feeling for the visitors.
