Today the third impression from the Amsterdam Light Festival
This Light Artwork was situated on the border of the Amstel in front of the Hermitage-Amsterdam. The installation was visible from all direction and changed constantly of colour. In the Workshop you can see a blue version.
Rhizome House – DP Architects
In the science of plants a rhizome is a modified subterranean root that often sends out roots and buds from it nodes. The rhizome also retains the ability to allow new buds to grow upwards, creating a structure above the ground. In Rhizome House from DP Architects the underground structure is brought above the ground. It is a life size display of this root system.
The interactive work encourages you to enter it. Light responds to the visitor giving an experience that is familiar and foreign at the same time. A cool blue and then a bright pink light will make you wonder about environments, comfort, organic spaces and natural habitats.
DP Architects is a leading international multidisciplinary architectural practice in Singapore, specialized in architecture, urban planning, landscape design, infrastructure design, engineering, sustainable design, interior design and – last but not least – light design. The firm has worked on impressive projects, such as the biggest shopping mall in the world in Dubai. Through different projects DPA has had a big influence on the development of Singapore’s urban surroundings. In all DPN designs human activity and civic quality are central themes. Voor Rhizome House DPA was assisted by Flos Asia, KKDC, Krislite en i-Light. (Website Amsterdam Light Festival)

Bonsoir, cher Rob,
Ce festival de la lumière est particulièrement brillant. Maintenant réussir des photos de nuit, ce n'est pas évident, et pourtant, le résultat est bien là.
Très jolie composition.

This bright photo is accompanied by an interesting note. I had no idea this was indeed a kind of figurative installation. It actually took me some time to discover the human silhouettes. I'm not sure if I would come to think of environment and organic spaces etc if I saw this on location, even got inside it, but it would probably be an interesting experience anyway. It's definitely an attractive photo.

The subject is well framed. The use of a tripod an d of a slow shutter speed is showing the details of the sculpture part of the Amsterdam Light Festival. It also has a special effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

De scherp afgetekende silhouetten van de bezoekers waren inderdaad zeer aantrekkelijk aan dit lichtkunstwerk. Je had hem in verschillende kleuren kunnen uitkiezen, maar dit rood en roze brengt warmte op een koude winteravond.

Very impressive shadows.

Excellent night time capture. Perfectly exposed with lovely vivid colours and superb sharpness. The silhouettes of the people are well dispersed about the frame and nicely complement the shapes on the wall.

Het licht festival daar kan men nog even naar kijken met uw link.
The fel rede kleuren zijn wel aangenaam.
Goede presentatie, scherp en helder, bedankt.
Groeten uit een rustig Vlaanderen,

Superbly done on a dark night out, the red and purple, orange and pink tones beautifully in contrast.
Perfect camera set for all 3 posts, no "grains" nor an excessive bulbs-glare and not too glittering.
My best regards,

quelle lumière quel dessin et vue fanastatique captage et effet quelle vue ces deux personnages en découpage noir superbe captage et image.
Bravo et amitié

The changing colours will add to the attraction, as it will seem like a new display, each time it changes.
You have fitted it into the frame well and combined the border effectively with the dark, night sky, making the shadowy figures seem like part of the display.
My warm regards,

The light installation is great, it resembles a Chinese shadow theater, very well captured with excellent management of light

En plus de la prise de l'œuvre lumineuse en nocturne, l'effet sombre des personnes donne un effet fantastique, superbe image

Painting by light and colour!! This must have been a wonderful show of the night, energised by the silhouetted figures., but the blinding red really stings me deep... and real hard!! A wonderfully crafted and presented composition, Congrats.

Hello again Rob,
With bright colors and nice silhouettes, this view really jumps out. Your exposure is perfect, too. It's nice to experience this light festival through your photos. :-)
ourania (51079) 2017-02-01 13:06
I like very much the combination of delicious, luminous colours with darkness and silhouettes. I also like how the tight framing brings our the plastiicity and the impression of movement the mesmerizing "alien" structures and the silhoutted humans evoke. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
jmdias (68615) 2017-02-01 14:46
amazing these colors, so strong and beautiful, and the inclusion of these personages. very beautiful and well done.
