Light Art In Amsterdam Last Night

CALL TO ACTION | I took it personal: Choose your favorite light art work (… the one you want to see back next year – let us know trough the website, etc) OK, check.

Last night I left my friend’s house just before the curfew of 9 pm, I had 15 mins to cycle from her quarter to mine. Easy, it’s not that far.

BUT! On my way to my parked bike I came across this poster: A call for entries for next year’s Amsterdam Light Festival: Let us know what you liked best and would like to see again next year. OK? Light art? Need I pay attention to light art? What light art exactly, I wondered. Ok, now I was interested, is there any light art, that I haven’t noticed? So I got my phone out, ready to take some pictures, while driving by – as there wasn’t much time, suddenly!

I took some snaps of contenders…

But one I really like – and would be my favorite: Close to home I passed the Tropenmuseum, a large building, partly lit, but with some dark corners as well. Pedaling my bike in a hurry (it was 9 o’clock now) from the corner of my eye I felt someone looking at me. I turned my head and – what was that??

I went back to take the picture.

Larger than life and lit – counts as the best light art I saw last night in Amsterdam.
