The light installation Transmission by Serge Schoemaker Architects is currently on display at Westerdok in Amsterdam as part of the Amsterdam Light Festival 2018-2019. This floating light installation consists of nineteen 'lines' of Plexiglas.
Seen from a distance, the installation looks like a gigantic light wave moving from the dock towards the water of the IJ. The scale of the piece, which half floats above the water, makes it possible to walk and sail beneath the installation. Thanks to its slender components, the 600-kilogram installation looks extremely light.
The light passing through the piece turns the installation into a dynamic architectural structure. Owing to the changing composition of illuminated lines, the work looks different from every angle. As you pass beneath the installation, you experience the 20-metre-long Plexiglas structure as a transparent canopy.
Transmission is on display at Westerdok until 20 January, 2019.
