Public Art project at the Vondelpark Amsterdam.

marjan laaper, vondelpark



From the 9th of March until the first of April 2001 a light projection was shown on

an 8-meter high screen at the Vondelpark in Amsterdam.  At the edge of a large

pool you could see a green image of the park at night, resembling something seen through night-vision goggles: so that details that normally cannot be seen become visible. On and between the trees you can see all kinds of shadows.  Mysterious

dark spots eventually resolve themselves into a shadow play.  Finally you can see what caused these shadows: a deer trying to find his way through the trees.
