This is a 4"x6" watercolor painting demo, one of the many ways how to paint a small figure with watercolor, step by step, by Zimou Tan. Enjoy! Much appreciated for your support, your donation in the Tip Jar will help me to generate more videos and lectures. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Arborescence was one of the winning projects for the Amsterdam Light Festival 2014 and selected by the jury for the boat route Water Colors.
Floating, ephemeral vegetation resembling the Rhizophora species grows from the Amsterdam water, luminescing and animating in response to the dynamic motion of water. A bioengineered mangrove, genetically altered to bio-luminesce, replacing traditional street lighting.
This is a fantastical speculation about the future of light in the City – proposing a hybrid between trees and streetlights in order to create sustainable ‘living lighting’. We bring cutting edge scientific research from the laboratories and into public space to inspire debate and action. The UN declared 2015 as the Year of Light and we see this is a great opportunity to showcase the most innovative and radical thinking around light-based technologies.
