#11 LIGHTFALL | Light installation

VIGAS, Brazil

REMONDIS Light Award winner 2021

Water is one of the most important resources of our time, worldwide! With this light installation, Brazilian artist Leandro Mendes brings the strength but also the beauty of nature right into the middle of urban space - a waterfall that stands for life and energy.

This five-metre-high waterfall is intended to raise awareness of the importance of water for the planet, but is also intended to sharpen the aesthetics of regular flow for individual perception: A unique experience is created in the moment, which makes it possible to experience the wonderful world of the Amazon a little bit in Essen.

Playing time: from dusk till 10 pm

Location: Kettwiger Straße | Peter Hahn
