Essen Light Fes­ti­val

Discover the Magic of Light from 1 to 10 October 2021

#18 FRAMES | Light installation

Dennis Nolda, Essen

Discover the WAZ message of the day or simply enjoy the music-synchronised light show. Nine luminous frames form a wonderful wonderful playing surface, so fine and transparent that the light seems to hover often as calm and sparkling as fireflies, then as powerful and fast powerful as a thunderstorm. Light art is the message of the festival. Essen has the claim to anticipate the future and stands for the integrative power of people: To communicate with each other and across borders and to live an open culture of togetherness.
