WINDOWS OF LIGHT is an installation created by Dutch artist Arthur van der Zaag in collaboration with Lighting Metropolis and AAU CPH – Lighting Design.

The installation balances on the border between lighting and video, and it will be visible from the outside on Nikolaj Square after darkness from the 29th of August to the 24th of February. The work is centred around one of the church windows and the tower on the north side of Nikolaj Kunsthal. The beautiful windows on the north–west corner of the building will be used as media for the installation to create a story about the window itself, and not least what is going on behind the window. By using three layers of lighting (from the inside, outside, and the room behind) the work will challenge our perception of depth.

“By using these three layers and coloured lighting, we are able to work with depth in two ways: the physical displacement of layers, and the impact the use of colours has on our understanding of depth.” – Arthur van der Zaag
