With plenty of brilliant works from both Dutch and international artists, the forty-four day-long Light Festival  offers a great excuse to visit the charming Dutch city. One of the event’s main features is a beautiful 230-foot aerial sculpture suspended on the Amstel River, by Janet Echelman  that maps the height of a tsunami wave. Belgians Odeaubois  and ACT Lighting design presented OVO, a multi-sensory installation shaped like an egg, suspended on water pool and liit by colored LED  lights.
Another piece on show was a bridge made from repurposed old bikes—items easily found in the Dutch capital. The InterContinental Amsterdam Amstel Hotel  also took part in the fantastic winter wonderland event, featuring playful shadows and lights projections on its intricate façade ovelooking the Amstel River. An explosion of light, color and high-tech sustainable innovation around the city, the Amsterdam  Light Festival ran until January 20th.
