What does home mean to you ? How does home look like? What makes it your home? And what are you doing at home? Visitors to the Amsterdam Light Festival get an insight into the living environment of the people of Amsterdam; of their home.
The people of Amsterdam are invited to photograph their ‘home’ and to share these pictures with Kempkes and Aardse. Through workshops participants are guided editing their personal interior photo into unique works of art in the form of large analogue slides. The result is used in a light installation: the images are projected onto the windows from inside the office building Mijksenaar. Visitors to the festival can take a look and peak inside, into the home of the Amsterdammer.
