GLOW is a light art festival which is organised by the GLOW Eindhoven foundation. GLOW can be described as an exhibition in the public space of Eindhoven of 35 famous national and international light artists. The light artworks are connected by a walking route.

Besides the light artworks and numerous side events there are also innovative, unique works of art that are created by young talents.

Shadows & Light

The year’s theme is called ‘Shadows & Light’.  “Every picture has its shadows. And it has some source of light. Blindness, blindness and sight”. (Joni Mitchell)

No light without shadows, no image without content. With this year’s theme GLOW 2018 searches for this duality. Effectively, it’s not only about the ultimate contrast between black and white, but also about much and little, inside and outside, restraint and abundance…light and shadow. Within the contradiction, the story is born; there’s no experience without contrast. ‘Shadows’ and ‘Light’ lacking, we would find ourselves in a grey landscape in which life evaporates.

The GLOW mission statement for the coming years is concise and convincing:

“Eindhoven makes the difference in Light Art”.

Sounds for Har Hollands’ Light Dome @ GLOW Eindhoven 2016

“Light Dome” is a light installation project by Har Hollands.

The purpose of the sound production is to enhance the spatial effect.

Design: Har Hollands
Sound: Augusto Meijer
Production: SmartLight

from gloweindhoven.nl/en:
“Last year, the project Light Dome, created by the Eindhoven light artist Har Hollands, was still under construction and could be seen in its first raw form. This year, we can enjoy the fully completed light installation as it had originally been designed.

With this quality impulse, the owner of the Heuvel shoppping center, CBRE Global Investors, enhances the attractiveness of Eindhoven as a shopping city. And it bears witness of the vision that they chose for a permanent light installation under the big dome of the Forum, so appropriate to Eindhoven City of Light.

The light dome consists of 121 light-transparent tubes, provided with reflecting layers. Every tube is attached to a cable and can be positioned at different heights, operated by an engine. The cable conducts electricity to the 20 light sources in each tube, thus generating a palette of colours. Eight loudspeakers will produce the sound to enhance the spatial effect. A central control system makes sure all movements, light- and sound effects are synchronised in order to create a coherent spectacle.”
