Art installation “Shelter” is being build up for Façade Middelburg 2022
Augusto Meijer will be developing a brand new soundscape, created specifically for Jaap van den Elzen’s new Light art installation which will be one of the participating artworks of FAÇADE 2022, a contemporary art festival in Middelburg.
Augusto Meijer created a brand new soundscape for Jaap van den Elzen’s “Evolution of Light” installation, which was premiered at GLOW 2018 light art festival.
GLOW is a world top 5 light art festival happening each year in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
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”.
The GLOW festival is an annual eight-day Light Art festival in the city of Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
The theme for GLOW 2015 was “Nature & Architecture”.
Augusto Meijer has produced sounds for Har Hollands‘ Light Dome installation, exhibited during GLOW festival 2015.
The spatial sounds are based around the theme of “Nature & Architecture” and they are distributed over 8 loudspeakers.
“HyperCube” Art Installation
Design: Jaap vd Elzen
Sound: Augusto Meijer
Structural vacancy is an international problem, which includes cities like London, New York or Tokyo. “Ruimtekoers” is a new initiative from a network of urban pioneers based in Arnhem (The Netherlands). They will present a public program from March 14th / April 11th 2015, packed with innovative interventions. The problem of vacancy will be used to bring the city to life. Available spaces are literally lit with green LED lighting and projections. The HyperCube installation is a part of the program.
