WIND POWER LIVING SYSTEMS FOR HUMAN BEINGS
Green energy. Everyone wants it, but not in their backyard. An odd thing for a country known for its picturesque windmills dating from the 18th century. How can we once again give green energy the allure it deserves? ‘Windlicht’ (Windlight), is a dance of bright lines. Special software and tracking technology detect the windmill blades rotating at 280 kilometres per hour. Green lines of light are connecting the blades. This creates a dynamic play o flight and movement. Windlicht creates the missing link between the Dutch and the beauty of their landscape.
Daan Roosegaarde was inspired by Kinderdijk. For him these windmills from 1740 are a perfect example of Dutch innovation. Reconnecting with the landscape and creating a positive image around green energy also drives him. Roosegaarde developed the artwork together with his team of designers and engineers. The studio focuses on exploring the relationship between people, art, space, and technology and shifts the paradigm of perception towards the positive regarding wind turbines.
