Amsterdam Light Festival 2016

The 2016-2017 edition on the Amsterdam Light Festival represents the fifth consecutive year the festival has run over the Christmas and New Year period. Robin and I walked the Water Colors circuit on the first Friday of the festival.  This year’s edition once again impressed both of us with the ingenuity of the installations.

A few days left after Robin left for Canada, I walked around the remaining sculptures that we missed on our Friday night walk, including the one pictured here: NEST by Studio ALBA.

The tight graphic construction of NEST combined with an interesting light pattern design (a full cycle is about 5 minutes in duration) made it stand out from the others for me this year.
