Paul Baartmans: light-art

 

“My main material is light.
Whether working for a gallery presentation or in commission for the public domain, I like to toy around with dynamic factors like movement, randomness and interactivity.
Another important motive is to create works that can cope with their surroundings on a monumental scale. Diverging ingredients such as shadow, rhythm, sound, reflections, interference of wavelengths, combinations of light art and architecture or (urban) nature; all this can contribute to a variegation of results, whereas my main aim is to provoke feelings of surprise and wonder.
The ultimate goal, however, would be sharing the fun of playing with all there is to play with.”

Long before today, this peaceful little canal must have been nothing but a small stream, where people did their washing, and cattle stopped to drink. The Kromme Nieuwegracht is lit from one side only, the light stroking the water surface and being reflected in mirrors on both sides of the canal, the light slowly falling apart in the distance. The playful light brings to mind the constancy of this place, seemingly frozen in time.

A special concept for this permanent circuit of light art and light design for the medieval city centre of Utrecht, named Trajectum Lumen.
