Patrice Warrener-Chromolithe, Villa de Laak

French-born Patrice Warrener has become world famous for the way in which he illuminates buildings. From Belgium to Singapore, from Japan to the United Arab Emirates: everywhere he goes, he turns the world into a book of fairy-tale images. Warrener uses projectors able to project coloured light onto the facades of buildings with enormous precision. The tiniest architectural details are highlighted and bathed in such a bright colour that they appear freshly painted. In 1989, Warrener filed, and obtained, a patent for the technique He has worked on the method ever since, refining it to create spectacles, each more vibrant and imposing than the last, in each place he visits.

For GLOW, he puts Villa de Laak in the limelight. In the glow of his illumination, the monumental buildings lining the Nachtegaallaan almost look like sugared almonds. The surrounding gardens are also lit up. The buildings constantly change colour, to the accompaniment of evocative sounds.

Hallo Berend en Ria dit lichtfestival is ook erg leuk en mooi. Dit was inmiddels de tweede keer dat ik er ging kijken. Heel knap wat ze met licht en belichting kunnen doen Hier vind je ook nog wat foto's van Glow 2011.

Thanks a lot *Christos glow is the largest event in the Netherlands that specifically focuses on light art. There is a narrow cooperation with lightartfestivals in cities such as Gent (Belgium) and Jerusalem. The city of Eindhoven has made a name for itself with light, art, design and technology and keeps developing itself with it.

Groeten, Best regards, Erik
