Daan Roosegaarde - Columbia University's 'Year of Water'

In the week of September 23rd, New York's Columbia University kicked off climate investigations with the launch of the Year of Water, its public program that focuses on Earth's most precious resource. The university will host exhibitions, lectures, screenings, symposia and research, and feature artists including Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde.

On the 23rd of October, Daan Roosegaarde will present an immersive light installation called Waterlicht each evening in the plaza of the Lenfest Center for the Arts. The project, in various forms, has been shown previously at venues worldwide. It features LEDs, software, lenses, humidity and site specific location design to envelope viewers in a collective 'dream landscape' experience that addresses rising sea levels and the need for innovation.

Roosegaarde will not only discuss Waterlicht, but also other visionary projects such as Gates of Light, Van Gogh Path, Smog Free Project, and Space Waste Lab with Carol Becker, Dean of Columbia University School of the Arts.
