For the first time, GLOW NEXT announces the Open Call for art projects. The winning project will premier during GLOW NEXT, from 9 November until 16 November in Eindhoven. Glow-Next is looking for submissions of new light art works that address the phenomenon of light, use light in a unique and/or innovative way and fit within the theme ‘PLAYGROUND’. This new to-be-developed artwork needs to be suitable for outdoors (in all weather conditions) and - obviously - in the dark.

An expert jury, chaired by former Philips Electronics The Netherlands president Jan Post and consisting of GLOW-director Robbert ten Caten, light artist Daan Roosegaarde, creative entrepreneur Ted Langenbach and GLOW NEXT-curator Olga Mink will be judging all proposals. The winner will be selected by mid-August. We warmly invite makers, artists, engineers and designers to submit light work proposals for the before 1 August 2013.

Like any playground, GLOW NEXT is a place to encounter and challenge new ideas, stories and experiences. Merging lighting technology, light and art, GLOW NEXT is building a community in which scientists, artists and industrialists inspire, interact and benefit from mutual expertise and experience. A place where experimentation and collaboration results in exceeding the borders of imagination. Capturing both the essence of light, now and in the near future.

At GLOW NEXT, light installations are not only being exhibited, they challenge you to interact and cocreate. Whether you are a technology professional or lighting enthusiast. GLOW NEXT strives to be an open playground for every innovative lighting initiative that strengthens the GLOW NEXT eco-system. Therefore, it also programs (in collaboration with its partners) several workshops, seminars and contextual conferences, to spark up imagination.
