The birds of Mr Maeterlinck

Licht Festival 2012, Gent (B)



Evocation of the book "the Blue Bird" from Maurice Maeterlinck.

The artwork is a reference to the tale "the blue bird" and was commissioned for the Maeterlinck year in commemoration of the centennial of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

A swarm of blue birds rests in a tree nearby the canal. Their reflection in the water adds a dream-like dimension.

The uncluttered lines of these stylized birds echoes the form and simplicity of Origami.

This light-installation really modifies the surrounding atmosphere while still very energy-saving.
