Illuminated circuit in the ‘century ‘lights there shines the dam to its 1000th birthday: A whole sea of lights trimmed from 13 April to 12 may the outlet basin of Lake Mohnesee. Thousands of LEDs, lights, projectors and 20 light installations line at the century of lights”an idyllic circuit along the shore and the dam. A mile-long promenade with many beautiful light looks at the side of the road is. Trees, bushes and paths are bathed in colorful light. Again and again, imaginative lighting objects draw attention to themselves. A shining bed hanging in the tree, light spirits abound in Grove and suddenly you encounter a giant faucet which gives light, instead of water. In some places, it is worth to let your gaze a little. Then, one discovers illuminated horses, friendly towards shining from afar on a hill.
Many self-contained light scenes are embedded in the landscape. The small headland on the southern shore of the outlet basin transforms light artist Wolfgang Faris in a fairytale forest. And also the small quarry to emerge from his shadow. The environment around the outlet pool is created for the installation of light art,”Faris is pleased. Interesting objects that seem only to wait to be pushed in the right light located here.” The illuminator is impressively in scene turbines and power plant. The military is supposed to get a mystical atmosphere. And fast light intervals around the power poles make the viewer believe an electrical short-circuit. The large presence of the dam comes on every hour then: you will be a 160 meters wide and 30 meters high projection screen, on which a good half an hour birthday clip is playing.
Viewers are taken with moving and moving images on a journey through the decades. No documentary outline of history awaits the audience. Rather, Faris gained a colourful collage of everyday impressions 100 years close brings history to the intervention on the dam.
