Serbian architect Ivana Jelić and Pavle Petrović have installed a LED version of Van Gogh’s famous painting ‘Starry Night’ on an Amsterdam bridge for the city’s Light Festival.
Around 1,400 acrylic rods, lit by small LEDs, have been installed to recreate a section of the Dutch painter’s famous work, which glows above the waterway. The transparent rods are set in swirling formations to emulate brushstrokes while the surrounding architecture becomes part of the composition, replacing the village and trees in Van Gogh’s original.
该装置是对城市光污染问题的评论 – 特别是在阿姆斯特丹，那里的天空’被橙色光芒永久污染’。“星夜” 照明装置作为一年一度的节日的一部分，直到1月20日。
The installation is a comment on the issue of light pollution in cities – especially in Amsterdam where the sky is ‘permanently polluted by an orange glow.’
The ‘Starry Night’ lighting installation is on view as part of the annual festival until 20 January.
