International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture
6th Edition 'Illusion and reality'
LAb[au] invited with:
binary waves, cybernetic urban installation
Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 5th to 12th, 2011, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light.
The Subject 2011: 'Illusion and reality'
Eindhoven is a city of many aspects, it changes between day and night between being open and insular, between dense architecture and green open spaces between light and a dark. What one moment seems a peaceful garden, becomes if twilight falls, a decor of eerie shadows. What could be perceived as a romantic bridge during the day or a chilly bicycle tunnel, in the evening, becomes a beacon of light or a maze of color. What is the illusion and what is the reality, or where does art begin and reality end ?
Or is Eindhoven's reality already an art in itself? GLOW 2011 aims to show a multitude of these aspects in a route which connects two pivotal institutions celebrating their anniversary this year, respectively the Technical University Eindhoven's (TU/e) 55th anniversary and the Van Abbemuseum's 75th anniversary. In doing so, let us wisely meet in the middle of illusion and reality, because if Eindhoven embodies truly creativity both necessary.
