This artwork on the north façade of Building BE completes the transformation of both the Lucent buildings in Hilversum by Studioninedots.
The striking monotonous facade, with a height of 30 meters, is located at a dynamic roundabout that forms the busy intersection between the Larenseweg and the Jan van der Heijdenstraat.
The artwork is a combination of an eight-meter-high, steel swing with an impossible shadow that gives the usually unambiguous north facade a play of light, movement, scale and illusion. The girl on the swing represents new energy and cheerfulness - a symbolic reference to the Lucent buildings that has been given a new lease of life.
In Full Swing – art project by Studioninedots, Lucent site, Hilversum NL, 2018
