studioroosegaarde.net - Sensor Valley by artist Daan Roosegaarde is Europe's largest interactive sensor artwork of pillars that breath light and sound in response to people. The local citizens in Assen (NL) call them 'knuffelpilaren' (hugging pillars) as they interact with human motion and touch.
The city of Assen has a longstanding history with sensor technology scanning the universe. Studio Roosegaarde's innovative LED and social design was selected from 125 other candidates as entrance of the new Cultural Center. Embraced as their new cultural icon, Sensor Valley enhances local social interactions; creating a tactile landscape of people, city and light.
