Eindhoven Glow 2012

Yesterday was the last day of the 2012 edition of Eindhoven Glow. It was a great festival with for the first time a small representation at the Strijp-S site too. The route through the center of Eindhoven was 4 km long (about 2.5 mile) and this year for the first time they made part of the route traffic free which was really nice.

As described on the Glow website, Glow is ‘a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light’. This year’s theme was facades and faces.

You can visit the Glow12 website at for some more background information of the light art works and the artists but this is my impression of it:

Keyframes at the police station on the Mathildelaan by Groupe LAPS

A long exposure image of Photon’s Dance at the Woontoren De Admirant on the Emmasingel by Teresa Mar

Detail of Photon’s Dance at the Woontoren De Admirant on the Emmasingel by Teresa Mar

Bwindi Light Masks at the Lichtplein by Richi Ferrero

Faces of the Netherlands on De Lichttoren by Jan Ising

Bouquets d’abat-jours (Bouquets from lampcovers) on the Wilhelminaplein by TILT

Expression – from the unmoved face to the speaking expression on the Hooghuis at the Keizersgracht by Sigrid Sandmann

Faites vos Jeux at De Lage Landen building by Skertzo

Children’s Glow at the Karel Vermeerplein by 2000 Primary kids of Eindhoven

Faces of Motion at De Markt by Michel Suk

Walking through Stratums Eind, the Let’s party GLOW project

Laser projection at Strijp-S

These two people were watching the huge ball change color and patterns so intensely and were sitting so still that at first I thought they were part of this installation inside de Klokkentoren at Strijp-S
