Tjep. illuminates amsterdam’s canals with undulating light bridge
This winter, from now until January 18th, 2015, the capital of the Netherlands will light up once again up for the third annual Amsterdam light festival, when the historical center becomes a dynamic showcase of light and movement. For the occasion, dutch studio Tjep. has created a luminous, undulating installation along the Amstel in the center of the city. ‘Light Bridge’ draws reference from the classic arches of a typical Amsterdam canal bridge, and evolves the lines and and curves into a free-flowing sculpture that both reflects the movement of boats on water and from the street above.
