Waterlicht - Abandon Normal Devices Festival 2017

Posted on 27th September 2017 by Mark Tierney

Last week I ventured to Castleton, Derbyshire to photograph the very impressive WATERLICHT set in the dramatic valley of Winnats Pass. It was an ambitious and large-scale digital installation by Dutch Designer, Daan Roosegaarde with International Design and Innovation Studio Roosegaarde. It was part of the Abandon Normal Devices Festival 2017.

Winnats Pass was flooded with light and smoke to reveal the geological formations of the site and its history as a valley once submerged under a tropical sea. WATERLICHT visualised how high the water level could reach without human intervention. Created using the latest LED technology, software and lenses, audiences were able to see historical water levels.

Here are some images taken from the top and also the bottom of Winnats Pass.
