Glow 2012, Eindhoven

Yesterday I went to an event in Eindhoven called glow. For those who are not familiar with this event; it is an annual, weekly forum of light in art and architecture. This year it runs from November 10-17.

The theme of GLOW 2012 is Façades & Faces. Artists reveal the different faces and views on facades, squares and public spaces in Eindhoven through different creations of light. They use light to create art objects and at the same time let the public see the centre of Eindhoven in a different way. Artists challenge the public to not look at things in a ‘realistic‘ way, but try to let them envision architecture in a different way.

It was my first time to attend GLOW and I was surprised by the number of people that walked the route. Positively surprised. There were a great number of people that came to the city and it made it a cozy and social experience. (Last year the amount of visitors was estimated at 360.000!)

Eindhoven is a candidate for the European Capital of Culture 2018. This event also acts as a tool to create more awareness for the city and proves the city is a suitable candidate for the title. In the coming years the event aims to become an international and experimental meeting place where innovative developments of light will be presented.

I would recommend you to go visit the GLOW event in Eindhoven. It is a good way of spending your leisure time and get inspired. Glow is still on until Saturday 17 November From 11 pm – 1 am.

Enjoy your weekend!
