Daan Roosegaarde creates an interactive memorial installation for Dutch Holocaust victims — 104,000, in total. Located on the banks of the Maas in the Netherlands, the designer arranges the space in a circle.
The memorial installation features quite interesting materials. It is compromised by stones that are doused in fluorescent pigments and therefore, emit a soft luminescence. The piece is intended to be viewed under ultra-violet light.
Daan Roosegaarde has titled the Holocaust memorial installation 'Levenslight,' which means "light of life" in Dutch. It is inspired by a Jewish custom. Another key difference of this sculpture — in comparison with others of its kind — is that it is completely interactive, unlike "traditional static monuments in which people are purely observers."
