Transforming Wind Turbines Into Light Art

Dutch artist and inventor Daan Roosegaarde has transformed a set of wind turbines in the Netherlands into a large-scale light show. Titled “Windlicht,” the project connects a row of turbines with a green laser, creating a set of mesmerizing, swinging beams as the fans hit high speeds. According to Roosegaarde, he “wanted to bring some poetry to windmills and to wind energy” as more and more Dutch citizens refuse the construction of the bulky turbines in their backyards. Windlicht will be on view on select days during March at St. Annaland in Zeeland.
