2018 Project

Daan Roosegaarde:


Artist: Daan Roosegaarde

Location: The Bentway

Partners in Art was thrilled to partner with The Bentway as they presented WATERLICHT, the monumental public art intervention designed by acclaimed Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde.

October 12, 13 & 14, 2018

This large-scale light installation illustrates the universal power, poetry, and danger of water and had its North American public premiere in Toronto on Friday, October 12 to Sunday, October 14, 2018.

Waterlicht is a dream landscape created through the imaginative use of LEDs, special software, and lenses. Larger-than-life, cascading waves of blue light soared underneath the Gardiner Expressway, simulating a virtual flood and called attention to rising water levels along Toronto’s shoreline.
