White Noise, 2009

Alticomtoren, Amsterdam

The handwriting of the universe
With a big bang, on December 2nd in 2009, the work White Noise for the telecommunications tower at the Zuidas (Amsterdam) was opened. Every night, high up in the tower a dynamic image appears, a twinkling universe where stars fall and planets light up, where meteorites swish by and small explosions take place. Every now and then, codes of letters and numbers pop up, as a sign of human communication.

Dim. 4 platforms Ø 50 x 20 m
Galvanised steel, 1044 LEDs, computer
