Waterlicht \ Daan Roosegaarde (2017)

Abandon Normal Devices were proud to announce WATERLICHT  for AND 2017, an ambitious and large-scale digital installation by Dutch Designer, Daan Roosegaarde with International Design and Innovation Studio Roosegaarde.

Set in the dramatic v-shaped valley of Winnats Pass that acts as a gateway into Castleton and the Hope Valley, WATERLICHT virtually flooded Winnats Pass with light and smoke to reveal the geological formations of the site and its history as a valley once submerged under a tropical sea. Stretching back into the times of the Ice Age, when glacial rivers carved the landscape, WATERLICHT visualised how high the water level could reach without human intervention. Created using the latest LED technology, software and lenses, audiences were be able to see historical water levels.


WATERLICHT at Winnats Pass, Castleton, was presented in partnership with National Trust and Peak District National Park.
