Klankvorm presents Lightforms
Lightforms is a new light art festival in Rotterdam with all newly commissioned live performances and light and sound artworks by national and international renowned artists. Lightforms is a new approach for Klankvorm to present projects at the intersection of light intervention and audio visual art in public space. The project consists of performances and a (mainly outdoors) light and sound art exhibition. At V2_ the new large-scale kinetic video installation SVNSCRNS produced by Klankvorm will see its premiere. All the presented works revolve around optical phenomena, kinetic objects and site specific installations which will shed new light on the partaking locations of the project.
