Waterlicht “Northern Lights” installation over Dutch flood channel | Daan Roosegaarde

Daan Roosegaarde is the Dutch designer behind the Van Gogh Cycle Path, and he’s now created an incredible installation above a flood channel of the Netherlands’ River Ijssel. The Waterlicht installation involves waving lines of light which closely resemble the famous aurora borealis, better known as the Northern Lights, when viewed from below. In reality, the installation is supposed to look like a “virtual flood”, showing where water would be if the defences weren’t there, to raise awareness about much of the Netherlands lying below sea level, and highlighting the importance of the Dutch water board. The installation can be seen until 1 March from 7.30pm until 10pm.
