Amsterdam Light Festival: Todd van Hulzen creates “Temporal Tower”

A lot has happened in the last few months, and we’ve been missing the chance to update. One of the most significant things is the fact that Todd van Hulzen was selected, with Studio Louter, to produce their concept for the Amsterdam Light Festival. This is a new annual festival of light art in the capital and we’ve come up with a plan that was compelling enough that it came out on top of the jury’s selection list. It’s called Temporal Tower, and it’s both and homage to one of the vanished clock-towers of the Amsterdam architect Hendrik de Keyser, and also an exploration of the place of monuments in the public space. And of course it’s supposed to be a delight for the eye in the cold winter months.

While we work out the budget and negotiate with the city about its placement, we are fine-tuning our design for the tower. We are particularly working with a lighting technician and a scaffolding builder who are going to be those chiefly responsible for the construction and the impact.

    Ik weet dat er een plan was om de Haringpakkerstoren te herbouwen, maar dat dit plan gestopt is.
    Mooi om te zien dat het (via LASER ?) TOCH GELUKT IS !
    Proficiat !

      Hallo Frits,

      het wordt belicht van binninuit door LEDs. De steigers en het gaasdoek eromheen vangen het licht op. Blij dat je positief over bent!
      Todd
