Amsterdam Light Festival (4)

One of the most impressive objects was this floating letter in the river Amstel,
The gently rocking letter is named "Dearest Friend..." and has been written by Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677). Spanish artist Darya von Berner made this object.

What the letter is about you can read here.

A few days later I watched the construction by daylight.

Here you have a better view of the handwriting of Spinoza.

And a few steps from his letter is a statue of Spinoza himself.

8 opmerkingen:

  1. What a creative and beautiful art installation! Thank goodness for visionary thinkers!

  2. Vision and Visionaries...what a lovely way to start this new year. The letter is so creative and beautiful. To see it up close would be quite the sight. It must be huge. a Happy New Year back to you.

  3. How interesting. And so appropriate to have the letter floating on the river.

  4. Not enough importance is tied to the value of saving documents.

  5. Everything in our life should be a least question once or more.
