Eindhoven glow 2013 - Pop into the Puppet Theatre
Pop into the Puppet Theatre
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: Jolanda Tielens
Location: Oude muur de Effenaar
About the project:
The arched windows of this old building are covered with canvas. A reminder that behind this façade there was once a canvas factory. Seen from the street, the cloth appears to be lit with a white light, but from the rear it’s obvious that the white light is actually a composite of red, green and blue. When someone walks into the pools of light from these spotlights, their shadow dissolves into spangles of colour. You realise that you can actually paint with light on this virginal white canvas.
The people on the street enjoy a shadow theatre that, thanks to the arched décor, brings to mind old-fashioned puppet theatres. The spontaneous scenes played out here couldn’t be more at home; just a stone’s throw away is De Effenaar, a pop venue. Jolanda Tielens is fascinated by the capacity of light to affect our perceptions of a space and direct our behaviour. This is precisely what the artist is exploring with her light projections. Sometimes Tielens opts for inconspicuous lighting and sometimes, such as here, light is centre stage.
