Eindhoven glow 2013 - Luminauten (v2)

Water Lily Nation
GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture
Eindhoven 2013 - 8th Edition - 'Urban Playground'
From November, 9th to 16th 2013, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light.
Artist: Luminauten
Location: Gracht Dommelstraat
About the project:
A sea of flowers, luminous water lilies of smaller clusters gathering about larger ones, fills the canal along the Dommelstraat. At their centre floats a giant flower, a floral queen reigning over her entourage. When all is tranquil, the water lilies gradually change colour and the larger flowers give off glimmers of light. The flowers react to each other, and seem to communicate.

If the peace of the water lilies is disturbed by a camera flash, the flowers react quite violently. The larger specimens blink brightly, as if to protect the colony. The smaller water lilies retreat into the darkness to recover their composure, after which they reappear. Water Lily Nation hammers home the point that the camera cannot register everything. If you want to observe the ‘natural’ behaviour of these aquatic flowers, you need to be patient, watch closely, and imprint them on your memory.
