Big & bright

Daan Roosegaarde has updated his interactive installation "Dune", making it bigger and brighter for the "Touch and Tweet" exhibition.

Daan Roosegaarde’s “Dune” project marks the spot where city, nature and people meet, and has just gotten bigger and brighter.

Dune” by Roosegaarde is an interactive landscape of light that responds to movement and touch. Installed outdoors, the installation aims to create a greater sense of safety in badly lit areas.

The interactive installation is made up of fibres, steel, microphones, sensors and speakers, which are controlled and operated by interactive software. For the latest version, Roosegaarde has used more LED lights than ever before, making the installation bigger and certainly more effective. 

Previous versions of the project can be seen along the River Mass in Rotterdam, where it is a permanent installation, and has also previously been displayed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

“Dune (2013)” is bigger and brighter than previous versions and is on display at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam as part of the Touch and Tweet exhibition, which is dedicated to installations that are responsive to touch, movement and tweets until 1 September 2013.
