Windlicht, the latest work of Studio Roosegaarde, shows the beauty of green energy by connecting windmill blades with lines of light.

Special software and tracking technology detect the windmill blades rotating at 280 kilometres per hour. Green lines of light virtually connect the blades creating a dynamic play of light and movement.  “Windlicht creates the missing link between the Dutch and the beauty of our new landscape” explains Dan Roosegaarde.


Daan Roosegaarde was inspired by Kinderdijk. For him these windmills from 1740 are a perfect example of Dutch innovation. Reconnecting with the landscape and creating a positive image around green energy also drives him. Roosegaarde developed the artwork together with his team of designers and engineers.


Windlicht can be experienced for free on March 18th and 19th from 20:00 to 23:00 at the Eneco wind farm at St. Annaland in Zeeland. Visitors can tune into radio canal WINDLICHT 105.3 FM to hear the stories behind the artwork. More information about the project and any future locations of Windlicht can be found here.
