Bridge of a 1000 Dreams

For the Amsterdam Light Festival, we’ve come up with a new bridge, a bridge of dreams.

Together with 1000 children from all over Amsterdam, we’ve built a bridge that catches their dreams for the future.

The luminous bridge is made up of bamboo sticks, which glow when UV light shines on it. Each student paints their own bamboo stick, with which everyone shares their dreams, ideas and fantasies with the rest of Amsterdam. What lights up are the markings and drawings made by the children. Together they form a bridge of light.
